NEW CITY - An out-of-control car slammed into a building in Rockland County on Tuesday causing significant damage.

Police say an 84-year-old man was backing out of a parking spot around 6:30 p.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and it crashed into a building on Third Street in New City.

The car knocked out the corner support for the building, and pushed out the front wall.

Clarkstown's building inspector was called to the scene, because it was thought there was a possibility that the building could collapse. Fortunately, everyone inside was able to get out safely. The driver of the car also escaped without any injuries.

The building houses a real estate agency, a plumbing business and an apartment. The plumber, who owns the building, says he is not sure how long it will take to fix the damage.

Police have not issued any tickets.
