HUTCHINSON ISLAND, Fla. – Surveillance video shows an out-of-control car smashing through the front door of a south Florida store, hitting a man inside.
In a Facebook post, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said the 21-year-old driver behind the wheel of the car mistook the gas pedal for the brake and crashed into the store on Hutchinson Island.
In the video posted by sheriff’s deputies, you can see a man walking out of the front doors as the car comes crashing through, sending the man flying through the air.
In what deputies described as “just short of a miracle,” the victim is expected to recover and only had injuries to his face from glass, WPBF reported.
Deputies said the man was “in unusually good spirits, asking deputies if the beer he had just purchased was ok.”
Investigators said the driver will likely be cited for careless driving, WPTV reported.
