“A man and his son were sitting right there where she went all the way into the building. The car pushed them out of the way. They just said, ‘We’re good,’” Janda said. “Everyone was fine. It’s really a miracle.”

No arrests or tickets were issued by police, Janda said.

The Subway is currently closed and will not reopen until Thursday.
