SUNRISE, FL. - A surveillance video captured the driver of an SUV smashing into the side of a restaurant.

The accident happened shortly before it was scheduled to open.

The 70-something driver of the SUV just happened to end up at Havana's Cuban Cuisine, and it had nothing to do with the early bird special.

She was distraught, partly in shock, disoriented, and luckily uninjured--- even though she is thought to have plowed into this sunrise business just as bartender Edwin Perez was prepping for the dinner crowd.

He jumped over the bar nimbly dodging the out-of-control SUV.

The bartender has some minor cuts on his leg and one whopper of a story to tell at the bar.

Watch video below.
