DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. -

People were running for their lives when a car crashed into a UPS Store in Deerfield Beach Friday.

A UPS employee said two women were inside the Toyota Camry that crashed into the store at 1121 S. Military Trail about 4:20 p.m.

A source told Local 10's Ross Palombo the driver was a woman in her 60s. Her 92-year-old mother was in the passenger seat, the source said.

Witnesses said the driver didn't appear to make an attempt to stop the vehicle.

"Honestly, I don't know how I'm standing right now... I was where the car was," said Girardo Davila, a clerk at the store.

Davilla said he saw the vehicle heading toward the storefront. He sprang away with seconds to spare.

"I jumped a chair, jumped the counter, and the car was there," Davila said. "My employee said I jumped like 20-feet... I looked like Spiderman."

"We just heard like a big explosion," said witness Camilo Medina.

Medina said the driver and her mother didn't move after the accident.

"They stay inside the car. She was shaking. We offered her some water," said Medina.

It's unclear what caused the driver to hit the store. The driver has not been cited.

According to the Broward Sheriff's Fire Rescue, the building didn't appear to have any structural damage after the crash. The car hit the plate glass windows and aluminum framing.

The store has been boarded up while workers prepare to reopen it.

Authorities said no one was injured in the accident.
