Car crashes into Miami Gardens store

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A car crashed into a Miami Gardens food store, leaving a mess in its tracks.

7Skyforce HD flew over the scene at the Xpress Lane Food Store, located at 20613 NW 2nd Ave., after a car drove into the store’s entrance, Friday, around 8:30 a.m. Miami Gardens Police and Fire Rescue quickly responded to the crash.

The owners and several other people were also seen standing outside the store as they looked at the damage left from the crash.

The store clerk said the driver of the car is a regular at the store. “I was just behind the counter, and then I heard a bang sound, and when I saw it, there was a car. Half of the body was inside the store,” said Hannah Abraham. “I guess she was also terrified.”

Only one customer, Kevin Henriquez, was inside the store at the time. He was buying a lottery ticket. However, it appears he won the lottery in another way by avoiding the car.

“I said ‘Aw man, I could’ve got hit,'” Henriquez said. “I’m all right. Thank God for the Lotto.”

No injuries were reported.

Why the driver crashed into the store is unknown.
