A car overturned in the Starbucks drive-thru in East Los Angeles on Tuesday morning.

Authorities said a woman in her 50s was driving south on Gage Avenue just before 8 a.m. when she decided to drive into the Starbucks drive-thru. However, when she turned into the driveway, she realized she needed to make a U-turn because she was supposed to enter through 3rd Street.

The driver accidentally hit the accelerator instead of hitting the brakes, so to avoid hitting the car in front of her, she pulled her wheel to the right, causing her vehicle to go up an embankment.

The California Highway Patrol said she was not injured and said she was more embarrassed than anything.
