This is the moment two cafe workers have a lucky escape when a bungling woman driver crashes a huge SUV through the front of the building.
The incident took place in the city of Rosario in the north-central Argentine province of Santa Fe when the cafe was still closed to the public.
According to reports, the woman, who appears elderly in the footage, is believed to have stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake pedal by mistake and lost control of the vehicle.

The CCTV footage shows two workers cleaning the cafe as a white SUV turns into the entrance. However, as the vehicle straightens, it appears to accelerate sharply and crashes straight through the front of the building.
The woman driver smashes into tables and chairs and hits the female employee before coming to a stop.
According to reports, the employees called the emergency services and police and paramedics arrived on the scene.
Miriam, the female worker seen in the clip, told local media that the driver did not even ask how she was after the accident.
She said: “I was shocked. I spent 40 minutes with the ambulance staff who treated me. In all that time, she never came over to ask me anything.”
The driver’s children reportedly arrived after the accident and asked paramedics to treat their mother.
It is unclear whether the police are investigating the incident.
