County police identified her as Deanna Jean Allik, who lived several blocks away on the 8100 block of Harford Road.

The driver was “OK,” Peach said, and may have accidentally hit the gas pedal in the parking lot, causing the car to drive through the front of the restaurant. Officers were in the area when the car drove through the glass and immediately attempted to help, according to the news release.

A passenger inside the car also did not report any injuries, according to the news release.

“We do believe this was just an accident,” Peach said, and the driver was not arrested or charged. Reconstructing and investigating a fatal accident “usually takes a month or two,” she said.
