NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A woman was killed Monday when a sport-utility vehicle crashed into an AT&T store in Great Neck trapping her underneath, Nassau County police said.
Around 11 a.m. the 65-year-old driver of a 2006 Toyota Rav4 pulled into the parking lot of the AT&T store on Northern Boulevard near Nassau Road. She told police she couldn’t stop and the car slammed into the store’s front window, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
A 66-year-old woman sitting on a couch in front of the window inside was struck and became trapped under the SUV.
Police later identified the victim as Lizabeth Sbar, of Great Neck.
People at the scene surrounded the vehicle and lifted it off of Sbar, police said.
Angelo and other workers from Auto Expo across the street ran over to see what happened.
“There was a woman lying under the car,” he told D’Auria. “The tire was on her chest. So we all got together and we lifted the car and I pulled her out.”
