A minivan plowed through the storefront of a Park Slope deli early Wednesday, officials said.
A navy blue SUV collided with the white commercial minivan, sending it straight into the glass window of the Deli and Smoke Shop on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Ninth Street at about 6:15 am, an NYPD spokesman said.
The female driving the SUV was taken to Methodist Hospital with minor knee injuries, the spokesman said.
The male driver of the van that crashed into the deli had a slight bruise to the head, but refused medical attention at the scene, according to the police spokesman.
Another person was taken to Methodist Hospital with minor injuries, a fire official said.
No one was hurt inside the long-standing store, the police spokesman said, but the shop suffered an large amount of property damage.
The owner of the deli could not be reached for comment.Reach reporter Natalie Musumeci at nmusumeci@
