[Original story]

A car slammed through a building Tuesday morning, causing some damage to a new restaurant that was slated to open Wednesday.

Approximately 15 Honolulu firefighters were on scene at Osoyami Bar and Grill at around 8:05 a.m. after responding to reports of a vehicle accident involving a person possibly pinned. Upon arrival, they found that a car had collided into the building on Algaroba Street.

Firefighters secured the scene and found the female driver, likely in her 80s, in an upstairs unit of the building. Emergency Medical Services crews later arrived and treated the patient.

A witness on scene said it appeared the driver, when pulling out of a parking stall, thought she was going in reverse when she was actually in drive.

It's not clear if the restaurant will still open on Wednesday, but there were no damages reported to fixtures or appliances, and HFD said the structural integrity was still intact.

There were no other injuries reported.
