A driver struck the front of a restaurant after striking another car in the parking lot Wednesday afternoon.

The driver of a 2001 Mazda 626 told deputies she began feeling ill. Restaurant employees at Karen's International Restaurant on Eastside Drive off Salem Road said she described feeling as if she were about to have a siezure.

She tried to pull into a parking spot but instead struck a parked vehicle and went over the curb and bumped into the metal frame of the front window of the restaurant. The window was not shattered but the bump did bend the metal frame.

She was not transported to a hospital for medical treatment.
