WATCH: New York driver crashes into laundromat

A New York City man accidentally reversed into a Staten Island laundromat, according to officials.

The vehicle reversed and, ultimately, crashed into the Coin Laundry on Sunday afternoon – injured at least six people. Surveillance video captured the moment when the vehicle plowed through the business and hit several people.

“I heard the ‘bomb-burst’ sound, so I came back,” said Bon Koo, the laundromat owner.

He said there were eight customers inside at the time of the crash – all of which have been his customers for at least ten years.

Local officials said a total of three people are in serious condition, including the 74-year-old driver. Police are considering the crash to be an accident.
