A 90-year-old woman accidentally backed into a McDonald's restaurant, disrupting a bingo game and sending a couple to the hospital with minor injuries.

Lois Weber told police one of her tennis shoes became stuck under the gas pedal on her Cadillac, causing her to lose control and back into the restaurant yesterday. She said she recently changed shoe brands and was not used to the wider fit.

No tickets were issued. Weber has a valid driver's license and was able to drive her car home.

Police say the car crashed into a wall and window of the restaurant in the Broad Ripple neighborhood on the north side of the city. The car pushed 80-year-old John Atkinson and his 75-year-old wife Beverly while they were playing bingo.

The couple suffered cuts on their hands from broken glass.
