An SUV plows into a Mexican restaurant in Tallahassee just before the lunch hour rush.

The Acura crashed into the outside seating area of El Jalisco this morning.

Tallahassee firefighters say the SUV was traveling on Bradford Road when it lost control and came across Monroe Street.

The SUV collided with another car, skidded across the restaurant parking lot, and then crashed into the patio.

Jorge Vargas, an El Jalisco employee, says, "I heard a loud noise coming from the accident outside. We had three or four vehicles into the accident. It scared the helll out of me, but I'm still alive. It was pretty, pretty scary."

Firefighters say no one inside of the restaurant was hurt. We're told the drivers of the SUV and the car were taken to the hospital. Their identities nor their conditions have been released.
