An MTA bus slammed through the front of a bagel shop on Woodside Avenue early Sunday morning.
The Q18 bus, which was traveling south on 58th Street at Woodside Avenue, ran into Bagels Plus, located at 57-20 Woodside Ave at 5:32 a.m on April 7, the MTA said.
According to the MTA, a speeding car went through a red light and struck the bus on its side, causing the bus to swerve off the road and strike the building.
MTA says the bus driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries to his wrist and foot.
Two customers on board the bus reported injuries and were treated and released at the scene.
The employees in the bagel shop were working out back and none were hurt by the incident. There were no customers in the store at the time.
Police say the Department of Buildings has been notified and the investigation remains ongoing.
