PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - Port Angeles police say three people seated at a booth were injured when a 77-year-old woman backed her car through a restaurant wall.

Nineteen-year-old Elisabeth Nicole Hagerman was taken to the Olympic Medical Center at Port Angeles with a broken arm and internal bleeding, according to her mother.

Her mother, 42-year-old Huberta Meadows, was treated and discharged from the center after Friday's accident. Fifty-year-old Juana Argyropoulos also was treated and discharged.

Maria Sands was not injured when her Lincoln Town Car plunged half its length through the brick, wood and glass wall of the Fairmount Italian Restaurant. Sands has not been cited. A passenger in the car, Gordon Cole, was not injured.

Cpl. Kevin Miller says Sands says she left the restaurant, got into her car, backed away from the west side of the building and swung around in a circle. Miller says Sands had no idea why she was not able to stop her car.
