6 injured after SUV crashes into Staten Island laundromat

Posted September 4

— Six people were injured when a white SUV reversed into a Staten Island laundromat Sunday morning.

Surveillance footage shows people folding laundry and waiting for loads of clean clothing before the car crashes through the glass door into the laundromat around 8 a.m.

Six people were rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North, FDNY officials said. Three of the patients had serious but non-life threatening injuries. The other three had minor injuries.

No identifying information is available for the patients. It is not yet clear why the vehicle reversed into the laundromat; its driver was a 74-year-old man, police sources said.

The floor of Page Laundromat is covered with glass shards.
