There did not appear to be serious injuries in the mishap, which occurred at about 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

James Grega, who owns the Fortune Barbershop next door to the deli, said he was waiting for his next client when he saw the vehicle, a silver Subaru, pull up to park, followed by a loud revving noise.

He said he then looked over to see the car fly through the storefront window.

“It was a loud, hard impact — like rock on rock,” Grega said. “The whole building kind of shuttered just a little bit.”

Grega said the driver of the vehicle was an elderly woman, who appeared shaken up, but not injured.

“It’s amazing nobody got hurt. That place is usually busy as hell and she hit right where everybody sits to wait,” Grega said.
