ISLAND PARK -

No one was hurt after a car crashed into an Island Park candy shop Friday afternoon.

The incident happened at Hope's Land of Candy on Long Beach Road.

The owners of the shop say they were fortunate nobody was injured.

"I thank God my husband's cousin was in the store 15 minutes before it happened and we were standing right here," said Joan Cohen. "10 minutes earlier there were people walking in front of the store."

The driver of the car has not been charged.
