Jul. 31, 2018
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a woman died from injuries she suffered when a vehicle crashed into a Topeka cafe last week.
Eighty-year-old Joyce Kasson died Saturday. She was injured Thursday when a sport utility vehicle hit a window and went into Banjo's Cafe.
The Shawnee County Sheriff's office said Monday that a preliminary investigation indicated Kasson's injuries were non-life threatening but her condition deteriorated because of complications.
The accident is still under investigation.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 82-year-old Peggy Turner, of Topeka, was trying to park at the cafe when she accidentally pressed the accelerator instead of the brakes.
The cafe hopes to reopen on Thursday.
