A driver crashed his SUV into a Little Caesar's in Homestead, Fla. on Wednesday night, injuring 10 people, including a 3-year-old child. According to WPLG Miami Local 10, the busy restaurant in the southern Miami suburb had its front door and window demolished by an out-of-control older, male driver behind the wheel of an SUV.

Authorities said that an older man was behind the wheel, and that he mistook the accelerator for the brake. Police cited him for reckless driving. Eight people were taken to the hospital, but all are expected to recover.
