NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Six people, including an infant, were injured when a box truck smashed into a bagel shop in Forest Hills, Queens Wednesday morning.
The incident took place at around 10 a.m. at 76th Road and Queens Boulevard.
Images from the scene showed the truck almost entirely inside the “Bagels for You” shop.
Five adults and one child were treated after the accident. One woman suffered a broken arm, CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported.
None of the injuries were deemed life-threatening, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.
“The truck sideswiped a car that was parked in front of Forest Park Chapel, put the car right on the sidewalk, and then he continued another half a block straight into the front of the bagel store,” said witness Frank Ackerman. “That was it. No brakes. There was no other traffic there, so I don’t know what happened.”
Through the open side of the bagel shop you could see a smashed refrigerator case, bagels and pastries strewn on the floor covered in glass and debris, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.Comments
