1 injured after car crashes into dry cleaners in southwest Houston



The vehicle slammed through the glass and the metal frame, kept going past the counter and went through a second wall of glass.

One worker was standing behind the counter and walked away seconds before the crash.

A customer standing next to the counter was also inches away from the SUV. He says he heard the Kia slam through the glass. When he turned around, he saw it coming and jumped out of the way.

The vehicle hit his leg, but he's OK.

The Kia driver was not hurt, either. She told ABC13 she accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes. She was able to drive away in the vehicle, which didn't have much damage.

The owner of the dry cleaners tells us she just took over the business two months ago.
