NORTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A pickup truck has crashed into a convenience store after it collided with a sports car in North Miami-Dade.
Cameras at the crash site, in the area of Northwest 148th Street and North Miami Avenue, captured a heavily damaged Chevrolet Camaro and a Dodge Dakota, which crashed into the front of a Kwik Stop, Tuesday.
The two women inside of the Camaro could be seen out of the car and sitting nearby. The person inside of the Dakota was hurt and was transported to a local hospital.
People who were in the area at the time said they heard a loud sound and ran outside to see what had occurred.
“I was inside. I heard the screeching,” Sarah Churchwell said. “It was insane. It was really loud. I’m just glad no one got hurt. The guy, he ended up going to the hospital, but he was OK when some people came and got him out of the car and everything.”
Witnesses said two people who were at the Kwik Stop had close calls with the truck. One woman in particular had to jump out of the way of the crashing truck, but she will be OK.
Justin Salazar, 78, said he was playing the lottery when the truck barreled through the front entrance. He said he is joyful he was not hurt or worse.
“Oh, my goodness, terrible!” he said. “Thanks to God. Thank you. God bless you guys.”
A surveillance camera inside of the store captured Nitaisha Saha, the owner, organizing some shelves in the front of the business before the the incident.
“I was scared, really scared,” he said. “They damaged everything my inside, also some of the shelves and my ATM machine and also some of the stuff they brought down.”
Miami-Dade Police have not said if any citations were issued in connection to the collision or who was at fault.
Part of the building’s front entrance has been temporarily replaced with plywood, and inspectors have labeled the building unsafe.
On Wednesday, repairs continued at the convenience store, but it remains unknown when they will reopen.
Both vehicles have been towed from the crash site.
