A woman drove a car through the windows of Stacks Pancakes on Hilton Head Island Wednesday evening.

"Somebody decided that Stacks needed a drive-thru," said Beaufort County Sheriff's Deputy Lance Corporal Stewart Mankin.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital with "non-serious" injuries, Mankin said. He was not certain which hospital she was taken to, he said.

She appeared to be in her late 20s or early 30s, said Tony Stephens, who was powerwashing the restaurant's driveway and awnings when the incident happened.

The car was parked in a parking space in front of the windows before the woman stepped on the accelerator and drove it forward.

The incident was believed by witnesses to be an accident.
