Two people are recovering after a car jumped the sidewalk and hit a building in Queens this weekend.
Police say it happened around 4 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of 37th Avenue and 56th Street in Woodside.
Investigators say the driver of the car told them he hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, sending the car over the curb and into a building.
“I heard a big noise. Then I came out and saw this. I think it was two cars. But it was not. It was in two places, one car. One here and the other piece was there,” said one witness.
“If I look at the crash site the car is crumbled and made into pieces,” said another witness.
The driver and his passenger were taken to Elmhurst Medical Center with minor injuries.
