PINE CITY, Minn. - The joke is obvious, but appropriate.

There's a new drive-thru at the Kentucky Fried Chicken in Pine City, and it wasn't in the works until Friday.

That's when a woman hit the wrong pedal in her mini van and plowed through the side of the restaurant.

The Pine County Sheriff's Office said the incident occured about 12:30 p.m. An elderly woman was parking her vehicle and mistakenly stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake. The minivan plowed through the wall of the restaurant and into the lunch crowd, bumping into two customers who were eating.

Fortunately, neither diner suffered major injuries, refusing emergency treatment and insisting on driving themselves to a local clinic.

The sheriff says no citations will be issued.
