BED-STUY -

A car crashed into a pizza shop in Bed-Stuy Tuesday morning, causing extensive damage.

It happened at 2 Win Pizza on Fulton Street and Brooklyn Avenue just before 6 a.m.

Officials say not only did the driver crash into the pizzeria, but moments before he is seen driving the wrong way up Brooklyn Avenue. The entire thing was caught on surveillance video.

News 12 is told the pizza shop was closed but was getting ready to be transformed into a Caribbean restaurant called Joy's Delight.

"Yeah that's my life savings that I put in to get the restaurant ready to try and get everything together," says Joy Lacoa, owner.

She tells News 12 they were hoping to open for Christmas, but she still remains hopeful.

"You know god has a plan for you, everything will work out," says Lacoa.

The Red Cross is working with people who live above the restaurant.

No injuries were reported.
