A car has crashed into a restaurant in suburban New York, injuring several people.

It happened at Enzo’s Ristorante in the Westchester County village of Mamaroneck (muh-MEHR’-uh-nehk) shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday.

Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy tells The Journal News that multiple diners inside the restaurant were hurt and taken to a hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Juan Flores works nearby and says he saw a red car trying to get out of the parking lot. He says it backed into the restaurant, crashing through the glass doors.

Photos from the scene show a wide section of the floor-to-ceiling windows in the front of the restaurant smashed in.
