VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Four police officers in Vancouver were seriously injured when a woman drove her vehicle into a restaurant, officials said.

The incident happened about 8 p.m. Sunday at the Fatburger fast food restaurant, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The Vancouver Police Department said the woman drove her BMW onto the sidewalk and crashed into the front of the restaurant, striking four uniformed officers with her vehicle.

The officers were in serious, but non-life-threatening condition after being transported to a local hospital, police said.
