The Jackson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) said that the driver was a 68-year-old woman.

"The driver was initially trapped inside the vehicle, which came to rest almost entirely inside the restaurant," the agency said. "Deputies and personnel from Fire District 3 responded to the scene and helped the driver from the vehicle."

The driver was taken in a Mercy Flights ambulance to Rogue Regional Medical Center with "unknown injuries," her condition is also unknown at this time. Two dogs that were in the car with her were reportedly unhurt.

JCSO said that both employees and patrons were inside the restuarant when the crash happened. Two people were hit with debris and received some minor cuts and bruises, but they did not need to be taken to the hospital. Several vehicles parked outside were also damaged by debris.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
