A car crashed into a United Parcel Service of America store in Deerfield Beach Friday, but no one was injured.

UPS worker Gerardo Davila said the Toyota Camry stopped just about a foot from where he was standing.

"I jumped the chair, jumped the counter and the car was there," Davila said.

He said the sound of the crash was something he will never forget.

"I hear something that sounded like an explosion – like, literally sounded like a bomb. Um, and I just see a car coming straight at me through the glass," Davila said. "It was fast and slow motion at the same time."

The two women in the Toyota Camry were not injured, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

There wasn't any structural damage to the store, but the car went through its plate glass windows. The car was towed from the middle of the store, located at 1121 South Military Trail.

A few hours later, it was back to business as usual inside, while outside the store things were cleaned up. Everything was cleared by sundown.

"I gotta finish out my shift," Davila said.
