Truck Slams Into Entrance of NE Miami-Dade Convenience Store

NBC Universal, Inc.

It started with a crash on the street and ended up with a pickup truck barreling through a corner store Tuesday in northeast Miami-Dade. 

Footage from the scene shows the entrance of the Kwik Stop on North Miami Avenue and NW 148th Street completely smashed in.

Surveillance video inside the store shows the moment a pickup truck slammed into the store, tearing through concrete and steel. The video shows a large blast with shelves shaking, glass shattering, and products flying all over the place.

A cashier inside the store said he had no idea what happened. Just 14 seconds before the blast, the cashier was sorting shelves. He just happened to walk to the counter before the sudden accident.

Another angle shows another man also standing at the counter when the pick-up crashed through. He appears to jump or was knocked by debris.

Miami-Dade Police say the pick-up that slammed into the Kwik Stop was involved in a crash seconds before with another car when it lost control and ended up partially inside the store.

Nobody was seriously hurt, but eight hours after the crash, workers were still repairing the damage and boarding up the business.
