A driver lost control of her vehicle in the parking lot and crashed into the outdoor dining area at Stone Fire Grill on Cinema Drive in Valencia Wednesday afternoon.

The crash occurred at about 3:30 p.m., according to a Stone Fire Grill employee who did not wish to disclose his name.

Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 126 responded to the scene.

“(The car) crashed into the patio but fortunately didn’t go into the restaurant,” the restaurant employee said. No one was dining on the patio at the time, he said.

There were two people in the car, but no injuries, he said.

“They come into the restaurant often, about once a week,” he said.

“The driver is a 67-year-old woman who was parking her car and hit the gas instead of the brake,” said Lt. Leo Bauer of the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

“Our traffic investigator said she did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” Bauer said. “It was just an accidental action by the lady.”

    • Joel Benjamin says:

      If you had read the complete short story, you would’ve seen that this was an accidental mix up of the gas pedal and brake pedal and not some stupid ass person flying down Cinema Drive.

      • travis levy says:

        Joel, Oh trust me we read the whole article. Accident or not its still a dumbass thing to do as well as unsafe and I’m sure she was in a rush just like everyone else around here.

  17. I have thought of that when you sitting outside and someone pulls in to park right in front of you!

  18. Suzie Acosta Suzie Acosta says:

    I totally read the headline as someone intentionally did this since it says “attempted drive through”

  19. Rocky Coennen Juli Weger Coennen

  20. Mary Miller Mary Miller says:

    Bummer, but let’s just be honest- stone fire needs a drive through window.

  39. Alyssa Valenzuela says:

    Was upstairs working when it happened.. Thought it was an earthquake before I realized the shaking was localized towards the outside of the building. Went onto the balcony to look down and see a whole lot of shattered glass and a car under where I was standing..

  42. Art Fonseca Art Fonseca says:

    Make sure to take away her SUV and drivers’ license while the city hands her the bill for Stone Fire Grill repairs!

    • travis levy says:

      I like where your heads at . It seems no one is held accountable in this town unless they had booze or drugs in their system. I mean the least they could do is make her take a behind the wheel to see if she is what the state would call a valid driver. But no we just sweep up the glass and carry on like nothing happened.

      • Rob says:

        You guys are acting like 67 is so old. The official age of retirement is 70! She will be held accountable. She will have to pay for damages and her insurance will likely go up. Accidents happen and there was nothing stated that she was being negligent. If this was a one time thing give the lady a break, she is probably embarrassed enough as it is..

  62. Alexa Michele. Sara Smith. Katie Newman. Al Stendel

  63. Wow glad it was not summer time right through the sitting area. Oh boy.

  64. travis Levy says:

    Looks like someone needs to hang it up and stay off the road. Just some shattered glass this time but maybe next time its a person.

  65. Roger says:

    Friendly tip:
    Rarely a need to jam on the brake pedal when parking.
    A light touch is fine.
    That way, if you accidentally hit the gas instead, you won’t go flying over curbs and into buildings.

  66. Ailu Amarillo Hassoun so this is what we saw!

  72. Cindy Meyer Cindy Meyer says:

    So glad no body was hurt or killed.

  73. Casey Warloe Beckie Warloe 😬

  74. Danette Batenhorst Bethany Bryski !!!
