Woman drives into restaurant, injures two

SEMINOLE — A 24-year-old woman drove into a Greek restaurant Thursday, injuring two people inside.

Tracy Bayes, of Seminole, was trying to park her 2000 Toyota Camry around 1:20 p.m. when she "lost control," rolled over a sidewalk and crashed through a window at Little Greek Restaurant, 10801 Starkey Road, according to Pinellas County deputies said.

The Camry struck 42-year-old Geraldine Coons and 53-year-old Christopher Coons, who were taken to a local hospital with what deputies called non life-threatening injuries.

Bayes was cited for careless driving. Alcohol did not play a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, deputies said.
