Woman caught on video crashing into upstate NY bakery


An 82-year-old woman could be seen on video as she drives straight into a bakery in upstate New York on Tuesday.

Kathryn Ford went to apply the brakes but accidentally hit the gas pedal, prompting her to plow into Dolce and Biscotti in Clifton Park shortly before 5 p.m., the Albany Times Union reported citing state police.

Inside, Ford continued hitting the gas, but luckily, Tom Fron, whose wife owns the bakery, ran over to the car to turn off the ignition.

“It was a miracle,” he told the outlet. “I was at the cash register and everyone else was in a separate corners of the bakery.”

“It happened so fast. I heard a crash and she was in the middle of the bakery,” Fron added. “We are blessed. Everything that was damaged can be repaired.”

Video of the crash shows the BMW slamming through the bakery’s glass windows, and into the kitchen where several employees ran for cover.

Ford had no injuries. Only one person suffered a minor arm injury and was treated by EMS at the scene.

The bakery posted on its Facebook page that it will be temporarily closed for one to two weeks due to renovations.
