A woman escaped relatively unharmed after crashing her car into a South L.A. restaurant this morning, reports ABC 7.

Witnesses say that the woman, whose name hasn't been released, was driving near the intersection of West Gage Avenue and South Main Street when her car suddenly cut across several lanes, jumped a curb and ran into the building, according to KTLA.

The incident happened at about 2:30 a.m. No one else was in the car with her, and the restaurant was closed at the time of the crash. Police, who think she may have fallen asleep at the wheel, are deciding whether to press charges.
