PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -- No one was injured Monday afternoon when a car slammed into Shiro's Saimin in Pearl City.

According to a witness, the driver was pulling into a parking stall when all of the sudden he heard "tires screeching" and the car hopped the curb and crashed into the restaurant.

Luckily, it happened around 3 p.m. after the lunchtime rush.

The female driver and her mother, who was in the back seat of the Toyota Corolla, were not injured.  A number of employees and customers were inside Shiro's, but they were also not injured.
