WAYNE, Pa. -

A car smashed into a famous footwear shredding items to bits and pieces! It happened at a shopping center in Wayne, PA. Several people are hurt. FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson went to the scene moments after it happened.

"This is shocking. No question this is shocking," said an on-looker.

People in the Gateway Shopping Center couldn't help but notice the scene outside a Famous Footwear store Swedesford Road in Wayne. What they saw inside was far worse than they expected. Gerald Nachman was having dinner nearby when he noticed the commotion.

"It's horrible. The car is so far into the store it looks like he just must've hit his gas instead of the break and didn't realize it until it was way too late," said Nachman.

Police say just after 6 this Tuesday, a man about 75 years old drove his Cadillac into the store. Police say he was driving under the influence. Five people were in the store. Three of them were taken to the hospital. One is in serious condition. Police say the driver was initially taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
