DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) - A woman who was driving a car that crashed into a popular Dewey Beach restaurant, igniting a fire that burned the eatery down, has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence.

Media outlets report that 37-year-old Michelle Small of Wyoming, Delaware, also pleaded guilty to criminal mischief this week in the crash at Ed's Chicken and Crabs.

Police say on Aug. 9, Small lost control of her speeding car and plowed into the restaurant. Authorities say the crash severed a propane line and sparked a fire.

The restaurant, which had been at the same location for some 40 years, was destroyed. The owner has not rebuilt or reopened at another location.

Small faces a maximum of 2 years in prison at sentencing next month.
