ENID, Okla. -- A terrifying situation happened in Enid when a driver laid on the gas and plows through a business.

Tire marks, some left over bricks, and a few splatters of blood. That's all that was left after the mess covered Evan's Home Medical Equipment on Thursday afternoon.

"Just sounded like an explosion to me," said Kirk Elliott, an employee at Evan's.

The explosion was the sound of a Toyota Corolla, careening right through the businesses front window and wall, as Kirk kicked into action.

"'Stop the car,' that was my thought," said Elliott. "Ran over there not knowing how I was going to stop this car."

Luckily, the Toyota slowed to a stop, with a shaken driver inside trying to figure out what happened.

"Saw a lady in the car... she was just stunned I think more than anything," said Elliott. "She said she was okay, and showed no signs of any problems."

Medical units were quick on the scene, but luckily no one was injured, except for a few glass shards stuck in Kirk's index finger. This story could have ended much differently though, if the car had crashed just moments before it did.

"I just happened to be right by [that] door there a few minutes ago on the telephone," said Elliott. "My wife and I always pray every morning for protection for the day. We got it today."

Store employees tell KFOR this isn't the first time a car's crashed through their walls, but it's been a few years.

No word on what caused the accident.
