8 Hurt When SUV Hits KC-area Starbucks

GLADSTONE, Mo. (WIBW) -- Eight people were injured Friday morning when an SUV smashed into a Kansas City-area Starbucks on Friday.

Five people were taken to local hospitals, according to the Gladstone, Mo., Fire Dept. None of the injuries were considered serious.

One customer, who was in the store at the time, said she was lucky she didn't get hit.

"It sounded like an oxygen tank that someone left a hose off of and went psssssh," recalled Lisa Parker. "I didn't flinch cause I heard that stuff at work. So I just sat there and my friend grabs me and pulls me out of the way. Otherwise, I would have been under a table and hurt pretty bad."

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
