A moment later, police say the same car crashed into the restaurant a few yards away while still going in reverse.
"It spun around...happened so fast," said eyewitness Elsa Brewer.
Marlyn Teran was driving her white car when she was clipped from behind. She still can't explain how the other car ended up inside the popular Italian restaurant. After giving her statement to police she was taken away for medical care.
The accident remains under investigation.
Tough to tell but a car drove through the floor-to-ceiling windows of Enzo’s Restaurant on Mamaroneck Ave in Mamaroneck. The vehicle is inside the building. At least 3 people left the scene on stretchers. I couldn’t tell what condition they were in. pic.twitter.com/9hYr7xuZhQ— Jennifer X. Williams (@JenXperience) May 7, 2018
It is not known whether the driver suffered some sort of medical emergency.
