A woman died after a car crashed into a pizza restaurant in Anna, Texas, Friday, while she was eating with her daughter and grandson, NBCDFW.com reported.
Anna police said a car crashed into Mama Mia's Pizzeria just before 2 p.m., after the 80-year-old driver, who was leaving a nearby beauty salon, hit the gas instead of the brake pedal as she was pulling out of parking spot.
The woman's car hit a pole and a minivan, then jumped the embankment and slammed into the restaurant, trapping three people under the car, police said.
At least four people, including the 80-year-old driver, were taken to McKinney hospitals. There was no immediate word on their conditions.
Virginia Hamlin, 82, of Anna, died at the hospital.
Grandson in shock
Her grandson, Rhett Williams, and his mother were released from the hospital late Friday night.
"I was trapped under the car under the rear right side passenger's side," Rhett Williams said.
"I've got cuts, scrapes and bruises, and my mother is the same way," he said.
He said the death of his grandmother still hasn't hit him.
"It's sinking in," he said. "I think the adrenaline and the shock is still too current."
Long-time neighbor Diane Oxley said Hamlin just buried her husband, Frank, a week ago.
"She is just such a beautiful person, and I'm just happy that she's with Frank now," she said.
Driver not told
They were married for 64 years.
"She is where she needs to be," Oxley said. "She missed him terribly, and I know they are together."
Relatives said Hamlin was a regular at Mama Mia's. She was eating lunch there Friday to share her late husband's obituary with the staff.
Anna police do not expect to file any charges against the 80-year-old driver who crashed into the restaurant.
As of late Friday night, investigators said they haven't even told her about the death because they didn't think she could handle it.
