Witnesses told the Nassau County Police the sedan hit cars in the parking lot before jumping the curb and slamming through the front glass of the store. Authorities reported 15 people injured with a dozen taken to area hospitals. The other three declined medical treatment.
The name of the woman seen behind the wheel has not been released. One person was pinned beneath the white Buick sedan when it crashed into the Trader Joe’s. Two of the victims were reportedly injured “seriously”. The owner of a business in the same shopping mall reported seeing one of the injured people being carried out on a neck board with their head taped down to immobilize them.
The accident is currently under investigation.
