Car crashes into busy sushi restaurant

'It could have been worse than what it is."

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A scary moment after a woman loses control of her Tesla and ends up inside Shogun Sushi restaurant.

It all happened around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Shogun owner, JB Kim says the vehicle ended up half way inside the building.  The restaurant had about thirty customers at the time of the incident.

"This is pretty... this could have been worse than what it is. The restaurant was at full capacity," said Brick Webb, friend of the owner of Shogun. 

Shogun has been opened for 10 years at its California Avenue location in Bakersfield and in that time owners say they have never seen anything like it.

Kim's wife was injured in the accident.  He says his wife is at an area hospital with a minor leg injury.  There was also a two-year-old baby taken to the hospital for observation.

Bakersfield Police officers say there were no arrest and no drugs or alcohol believed to be involved in the crash.

No telling how soon the restaurant will be opening back up.
