YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, Westchester County (WABC) -- Surveillance video captured the moment a vehicle crashed through the front of a restaurant in Westchester County on Thursday afternoon.

The restaurant was filled with customers at the time.

Surveillance video from the Pappous Greek Kitchen on Commerce Street shows an employee sitting in a chair when a Jeep, that had been parked in the lot of a Chase Bank next door, comes crashing through a wall.

Staff members say the driver of the Jeep, an elderly woman, accidentally hit drive instead of reverse to get out of her parking spot.

No one was not hurt.

Workers say a similar incident occurred last July when a car and careened into the restaurant's rear parking lot.

The Building Department will assess for structural damage. The restaurant and bank are exploring more permanent barriers.
