HALEDON, New Jersey (WABC) -- A car crashed into a floral shop in Haledon, New Jersey, on Wednesday morning.

It happened around 6:20 a.m. on Central Avenue at West Broadway.

The driver crashed into the front of Morningside Greenhouse and then apparently fled the scene of the crash on foot.

One person was evacuated from the building, but fortunately was not injured.

Tara Fischer said her grandfather built the building decades ago.

Her neighbor captured the whole incident on surveillance camera.

Despite the damage, building inspectors say the structure is sound.

Tara's father says they are still open and making deliveries because their customers count on them.

Roadways near the florist were closed for the investigation.
