At least four people are dead and nine hospitalized after a vehicle crashed through the front of a building in Long Island, New York on Friday afternoon, officials said, FOX 5 reported.

FOX 5, citing sources, confirmed that the crash happened at 4:42 p.m. at the Hawaii Nail & Spa on Grand Avenue in Deer Park in Suffolk County

Police said a motorist in a minivan "drove through the building, all the way through the building." Authorities said several people were left trapped after the minivan plowed through the local business.


Footage from the scene showed a massive hole in the small local business that the vehicle appeared to blow right through.

The driver was partially conscious when first responders arrived on the scene, police said.

Witness Eric Perez told Fox News Digital that he heard the crash.

"Sounded like glass shattering," Perez said. "Like nothing I’ve heard before."

Perez said he first disregarded the racket until he saw law enforcement vehicles all over the place. 

"I disregarded it at first," Perez said. "It’s Friday, and we live in a crazy world and now the police are rolling out tape."

The cause of the crash is unknown, and it is unclear whether it was intentional or not. It is also unknown if children were inside the building at the time, and whether employees or customers were injured.

Identities of the driver and victims have not been released.
