NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A collision involving two cars caused one of the cars to crash into a delicious food store.
CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez knew that at least six people had been taken to hospital.
A normally crowded intersection at West 135th Street and Broadway went chaotic on Sunday when a gray SUV and a white SUV collided. The gray car, with two people inside, came up to the curb, passed a pedestrian and then dashed past the front of the NYC Organic Deli.
Joselito Fermin was eating at a nearby restaurant and heard a crash.
“I was inside El Valle restaurant and then I heard an explosion and then I walked out and there was an old man on the floor right there. He broke both his legs, ”said Fermin.
The inside of the store was left in ruins, with shards of glass everywhere.
Witnesses said two passengers in the gray car were briefly trapped, but not seriously injured.
Three people riding in the white SUV suffered minor injuries.
Inspectors from the Construction Department were at the scene and said there was no serious structural damage to the building.
