The video captures a sense of urgency as the situation unfolds. You can hear the commotion of the sirens. The footage shows multiple victims on stretchers being helped by firefighters and shattered glass on the sidewalk. CBS2's Layton spoke with a young man who said he was inside the restaurant when the car came feet from where he was eating with relatives. He said the rest is a bit of a blur as he got out of there as quickly as he could.

"I have a lot of adrenaline running through me," Ethan De La Rosa said. "It was shocking to see. My life almost ended. It was crazy."

"I'm very concerned because I worked for them a long time. The owner is the nicest person. The family is the nicest people in the whole world and I just hope they're OK," former employee Jedaiah Conlan added.

The driver was said to be very shaken up and was being interviewed by police, CBS2's Layton reported.

The Westchester County Police Accident Investigation Unit was said to be on the scene.
