At this point, we don't know any other particulars… such as the cause of the accident…

A witness told 1010 WINS reporter Gary Baumgarten that the vehicle was driving fast when it crashed through the front window. "He was driving extremely, extremely fast," Richard Ciero said.
The impact was so loud that a nearby store owner came outside thinking that a bomb had gone off.
And an EVG reader left this comment:
It was my daughter in the back of the cab. She was on her way to the airport. She has severe whiplash. Very grateful her injuries were not worse.
