VIDEO: Car smashes into store, nearly hits woman

BELFIELD, Australia - (NBC) A woman in Australia is lucky to have escaped being seriously injured or killed after a car smashed into a highway service station over the weekend.

Surveillance camera footage shows the car plowing through the front glass wall of the service station shop in the Sydney southwest suburb of Belfield where Catherine Crawford can be seen walking toward the counter.

Seconds later she was thrown to the ground by the impact of the crash.

Back at the service station on Jan. 18, Crawford was greeted by co-owner George Diab, whose wife was behind the counter at the time of the Crash.

"I thank the God many times that she's still OK, that she walk out safe," said George Diab, the co-owner of BP Belfield Service Station.

Local media reported that the crash caused a major gas leak that lasted several hours.  It is not known what caused the crash.

Three occupants of the car were treated by paramedics and taken to the hospital.

A fourth man, believed to be the driver, was missing.
