SAN DIEGO -- A car crashed into a Starbucks store in downtown La Jolla Wednesday afternoon, but no one was injured, authorities say.

It happened around 1 p.m. in the 1100 block of Prospect Street. The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu told officials that their foot slipped off the brake and hit the gas pedal, according to Capt. Jeff Clyons of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A witness says the vehicle came within inches of hitting a woman and her baby inside the store.

"A lady was dragging a stroller out of the way with a baby inside. She was screaming," Vahid Moradi said.

The store was evacuated. A city building inspector was called out to the scene.
