BROOKLYN - A Popeyes restaurant is on cleanup duty after a car crashed through its front window in Canarsie. 

A News 12 viewer sent in cellphone video of the aftermath on Rockaway Parkway, near Skidmore Avenue, late Thursday night. 

The SUV came to a stop in the middle of the fast food joint, leaving shattered glass everywhere, and taking out tables and chairs.  

The general manager says the female driver accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, causing her to plow into the building. 

One person was taken to Brookdale Hospital with minor injuries.
