“Sounded like an explosion. It was really, really loud. I thought one of these huge machines had fallen because it was so loud,” said Claudia Miranda. She was in the shop at the time of the crash. “There was like smoke everywhere, and I looked outside the drive-thru window, and there was just a car in the shop.”
No one at the ice cream store was injured. “They told her if the building wasn’t that hard, that the car could have gone inside and something could have happened,” the witness said.
