Two Starbucks customers were injured and taken to a nearby hospital after a car crashed into a Schaumburg coffee shop Monday afternoon.
The crash happened about 4:40 p.m. at the Starbucks at 181 N. Barrington Road. A driver, a 71-year-old woman from Streamwood, was attempting to park her white Chevy Malibu but accidentally hit the accelerator and drove through the front window, Schaumburg Lt. Mike DeGiulio said.

"The car went completely through the front window, so luckily there was no major structural damage. But with the window blown out and everything damaged inside, they're going to have some issues with getting it back up and running," DeGiulio said.
A 34-year-old man from Winthrop Harbor and a 32-year-old woman from Park Ridge were taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates with injuries that were not life-threatening, Schaumburg Sgt. John Nebl said.
Starbucks is closed while repairs are being made. Tables and chairs in the store were damaged, but no estimates were available, DeGiulio said.
The driver, who was shaken up after the crash, was treated at the scene and eventually signed a medical release form, DeGiulio said. She was not injured.
No citations were issued.
"It happened on private property," Nebl said. "Nothing that attributed to this accident could be ticketed on private property."
