Vehicle Crashes Through Hudson Valley Bagel Shop
Customers at a lower Hudson Valley bagel shop got quite a surprise Wednesday morning. Officials say an SUV went straight through the storefront, narrowly missing several customers who were inside at the time.
This is not something you'd expect while you're waiting in line for your bagel with cream cheese order.
However, out-of-control vehicles crashing into structures happens more than you may think. In many cases like this, a driver may have either suffered a medical episode, or it could simply be a case of motorist error. There are other times though, that high speeds or impairment are to blame.
