Customers said the sound of the crash was like “was a bomb or explosion” because they “just saw the smoke, and the glass just went flying.”
Several children were hurt in the crash but were treated at the scene. Another person was pinned to a wall.
First responders transported two of the victims to Ryder Trauma Center and two others to the Jackson Memorial Hospital emergency room. Another victim was apparently also taken to the hospital for medical treatment as well.
Authorities expect all victims to make a full recovery.
