Shocking footage has emerged from China of a car suddenly speeding up and crashing into a restaurant after the driver mistakenly pressed the accelerator, instead of the brake. The CCTV video, captured in Shanghai last Sunday, shows a car suddenly speeding up, knocking over an electric bike and driving into the restaurant.

Four customers sitting near the window were hit by the vehicle, and woman sustained facial injuries as well. It has been reported that several others were injured in the accident as well.

According to local reports, the driver of the car only got her license six months ago, and was trying to park when she accidentally mistook the brake for the accelerator.
