"We heard something and people were saying it is thunder? Is it an earthquake? It was like the whole floor was shaking. And we were scared, honestly. We knew something was bad, something was going bad," Igor Spreckic said.

Police said the driver of the car is cooperating with investigators.

The Allegheny County District Attorney's office will determine if charges will be filed, once the investigation is complete.
