    Fifteen people were hurt after a woman plowed her car into a crowded Trader Joe's on Long Island, authorities said.

    The car slammed into the Trader Joe's on Long Beach Road in Nassau County Friday, pinning a man as it scattered broken glass, groceries and cash registers.

    "When the car came through, it was just like shattering glass, and the next thing we knew the registers were like dominoes and went down, 1-2-3," said Elizabeth Donnelly.
