A Superior restaurant is closed until further notice. Employees say a woman drove her car into their front wall.

The crash happened late Thursday morning at Julie's Family Restaurant on Belknap Street near the UW-Superior campus. It bent up the front door and pushed in part of the brick wall surrounding it.

Waitress Kailey Bergner tells Eyewitness News she was just inside the door when she said she heard what sounded like a gunshot. "There was a big crash, and as you can see some of the side wall actually fell down and you looked and saw the lady had actually crashed into the building," she said.

Police say the driver's foot likely slipped off of the brake and hit the gas pedal.

No one was hurt.
