A busy morning at the deli and smoke shop in Park Slope quickly turned into a scramble to survive.
A white van slammed into the entrance, inches away from hitting two joggers who sprinted away.
Though clearly shaken, the women go back to help.
Nasr Alfahad was behind the register at the time, along with several customers.
Outside, shattered glass from the door and window sprayed the sidewalks.
Police say a navy blue van clipped the white van, which careened into the building.
Witnesses say the driver of the white van was traveling northbound on 5th Avenue, when it collided with the dark one, going Eastbound on 9th Street.
They say the driver of that vehicle sped through a red light.
The owner of the store is surveying the damage, hoping to re-build the family business of 20 years, soon.
He says he can't believe no one was seriously hurt, especially after watching video, showing such a close call.
