RAMSEY, N.J. -- An elderly Brooklyn couple walked away without serious injuries after their sedan smashed into the Bottle King on northbound Route 17 in Ramsey Friday afternoon.

"Instead of hitting the brake, he hit the accelerator," Police Chief Bryan Gurney. "It took out the foyer area in front of the store."

The Bottle King remained open, with customers using other entrances.

The couple, meanwhile, refused treatment from the Ramsey Ambulance Corps.

The car was removed via flatbed truck.
