ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - People hoping for a morning snack were left running for cover when a driver plowed into an Albuquerque doughnut shop and injured one customer Tuesday morning.
"We heard a sound like a bomb blast," said Razzak Gauba, co-owner of the Donut Mart in the 800 block of Juan Tabo Boulevard NE
Albuquerque police said a man in his 60s hit the gas instead of the brake crashing his SUV through the 8-foot plate glass windows.
About six to eight people were inside when it happened including some customers sitting at tables right next to the windows.
The made it at least halfway in before stopping.
One man sitting inside was knocked to the ground and cut possibly by the shattering glass. A 1-year-old girl was within a few feet of the crash.
"I had my back towards the window holding her, and I just heard this loud explosion of the glass hitting the floor and everything," Andy Barrow told KRQE News 13 as he held his daughter Lena.
"We saw this older man laying on the floor so we assisted him and got him up and cleaned him off, and before you know it the cops were here," added Roger Weinreich.
The man on the floor suffered a severe cut to his hand and was put on a stretcher. It's unclear if he was taken to the hospital although his injuries are considered minor.
No one else was hurt.
Donut Mart employees said the store will likely be closed for the rest of the day for repairs, but they're hoping to open back up on Wednesday.
