The 74-year-old driver of the white Ford Escape mistakenly pressed the accelerator while reversing out of a auto park space in Staten Island, New York City.

Three patients are suffering serious, but non-life threatening injuries and three patients are suffering minor injuries, the FDNY spokesman said.

Police say the 74-year-old driver may have mixed up the gas and brake pedals when his SUV slammed into the Page Avenue Laundromat, at 240 Page Tottenville, Staten Island, just after 8 a.m. Police are considering the crash to be an accident. In surveillance video, viewers can see the white SUV back up slowly before accelerating through the front of the business. In one video, a person outside can be seen collapsing to the ground as they try to dodge the out-of-control vehicle.

Among the injured was pregnant woman who was comforted by a witness to the crash.

'She couldn't feel her legs, she was in a lot of pain.

"We had this explosion and we see the vehicle coming, but he was coming so fast, there was no time", said Zoraida Michelle of Tottenville.
