NEW CITY - A relaxing day of yoga turned into chaos Friday after a car crashed into a studio at 170 North Main St. in New City.

Felicia Somma, the owner of New City Yoga Center, says she was meditating when she heard a loud boom. She thought maybe a pipe had burst, but instead found a car smashed through her storefront with an elderly couple inside.

The 87-year-old driver tells News 12 he hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. He says other than being a bit shaken up he is fine. He even kept his appointment at the bank.
