FRANKLIN SQUARE -

A car plowed straight into a 7-Eleven in Franklin Square Thursday afternoon.

It happened on Hempstead Turnpike in Franklin Square.

A man who works nearby says he saw it all happen.

"The car was in the store. All the way up I would say, to the refrigeration department, but the lady was still in the car. She seemed OK, an elderly woman, she was very nervous. A little shaken up, you know,” says Peter George.

The driver was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

No one inside the store was injured.
