WOODLAWN, OH (FOX19) - A driving lesson on Wednesday ended with a car crashing into the Woodlawn Popeyes restaurant.

Police said an unlicensed teen was driving with her mother as a passenger when she struck the restaurant, located on Springfield Pike.

The crash caused a piece of restaurant equipment to fall, injuring a drive-thru employee. The mother was taken to the hospital with an ankle injury, according to police.

Charges are pending against the teen for driving without a license. Police say her mom could also be charged.

City engineers said the structure is sound, but the Popeyes is closed down for the night.
