Geneva, N.Y. - Several people injured when a car crashed into an Ontario County restaurant Tuesday night were released from Geneva General Hospital, while two other victims, including a 3-year-old, remain at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The incident happened at a Denny's restaurant on Routes 5 and 20 in Geneva just after 8:00 p.m.

Police said as she drove her car into a parking spot outside of the restaurant, 64-year-old Kathleen Drooby of Geneva failed to stop, causing the vehicle to crash into the building.

First responders said the car drove onto a booth that had been cleared just moments earlier.

No one was hurt by the car, but four people were injured due to falling debris. One of those injured, a three-year-old, was flown via Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital for abdominal and facial injuries.

Drooby and a passenger in her vehicle were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but drugs and alcohol are not considered factors.

The restaurant will be closed through Wednesday due to structural damage.
