Watch the moment an SUV ploughs through a busy restaurant's window

At least nine people have been injured after a large SUV crashed through a restaurant window in Houston earlier this week.

The incident was captured on CCTV at Dimassi's Mediterranean Buffet, where diners can be see running from the window as the vehicle comes crashing through.

None of the injuries sustained are believed to be life threatening, according to authorities. In the video, the female driver can be seen trying to reverse, but instead the vehicle lurches forward, trapping another man underneath the counter.

It's alleged the driver told police that she confused the brake with the accelerator.

Four ambulances and two fire engines from the nearby Houston Fire Department arrived at the scene shortly after.
