A Westchester business owner is glad that no one was seriously injured when an elderly man drove into the front of his story on Saturday.

Pat Staropoli said the incident that occurred around 11:35 a.m.at his business in New Rochelle, Simply the Best Fruits and Vegetables at 1283 Weaver St., injured one shopper who was taken to the hospital, but he believes she is fine.

"I think it really scared her and she fell back into a shelve or rack," he said. "I just thank goodness no one was seriously injured."

Staropoli, who said the damage was pretty extensive, had to have a contractor come in and install new beams and plywood in order to open his business on Sunday.

"I'm not sure if the driver hit the gas instead of the brakes or what happened," he added.

New Rochelle police would not comment on the crash.
