A white Subaru SUV smashed through the front entrance of Trader Joe’s on 92nd Street and Columbus Avenue on Thursday afternoon at around 1:10 PM.
“According to a cop on the scene, someone was parallel parking and may have hit the gas instead of the brake,” wrote bystander Ed Hersh. “Amazingly, no one was hurt, per this officer.”
Council member Gale Brewer’s team was on the scene and she is speaking with the 24th precinct.

Update, 4:09 PM: The driver of the car, which has a Massachusetts license plate, was “a 75-year-old woman who lost control of the vehicle while trying to park, causing her to hit the building,” an NYPD spokesperson told the Rag. “A female pedestrian, 69, was struck, and removed to St.Luke’s [Mount Sinai Morningside] hospital. Her condition was not reported. The driver remained at the scene. There didn’t appear to be any criminality involved.”
