A car crashed into Petrini's restaurant on Calle Real in Goleta.

GOLETA, Calif. -

An elderly driver and his passenger were shaken up but not hurt when their car went into a building in Goleta Monday.

Around 11:30 a.m. witnesses said the driver was backing up, then went forward over a curb.

The car knocked down a power pole before hitting the Petrini's Italian Restaurant on the 5700 block of Calle Real.

The impact shattered the window and cracked the wall. Santa Barbara County Fire and sheriff's deputies came to the scene but no one was seriously hurt.

Employees were in the restaurant at the time but they were in the back and kitchen area, not near the front window when the car came smashing in.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
