EAST FLATBUSH -

A driver drifted off an East Flatbush road Thursday evening, slamming into pedestrians and then a nail salon.

The driver uses a wheelchair and special devices to drive his car, police say, but he lost control of the vehicle.

The Nostrand Avenue crash hurt at least six people and damaged Lucky Star Nails. Police say none of the injuries were serious.

Zoumba Jacqeline says she saw the crash while she was getting her nails done.

"He lost track," she says. "He went running that way into the store -- not too fast -- just like he lost control."
