NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An accident involving a funeral procession left 16 people injured, and at least one critically Saturday.

A limousine carrying mourners crashed into the Mega Mini Market on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in Springfield Gardens, after being cut off by a minivan.

“I just saw the big limousine came inside,” owner Sunny Singh told 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten.

Witnesses say the van was trying to pass through the funeral procession when it hit an SUV filled with mourners. The limo swerved to avoid the crash and slammed into the market.

Owner Sunny Singh’s wife was hit by the limo.

“The car came and went through one wall, then through the other wall, two walls. It came inside the store and she was over there by the stairs, cleaning,” Singh said.

Workers boarded up the wall after the crash.
