Diners outside an Auckland restaurant had a lucky escape after a car lost control and crashed into its outdoor seating area.
Multiple calls were made by witnesses to emergency services at 3.20pm on Saturday after a car collided with The Dominion bar and restaurant in Mount Eden.
The bar is on the corner of Dominion Rd and Valley Rd.
A bar worker said the car had narrowly avoided hitting a family sitting outside.
"I heard a burnout sound and then the car lost control," he said.
"My heart's racing a bit."
Nobody was injured, including the driver, but St John paramedics were on scene.
The car was believed to have had just one passenger.
A police spokesman said police were taking statements from witnesses after receiving multiple calls from the public.
He said the car had crashed through an outdoor dividing wall.
