An elderly driver lost control of her car and slammed through the front doors of a Rite-Aid Pharmacy in New Jersey, hitting a shopper inside. NBC 4 New York has the dramatic security camera footage of the accident, which took place in Rutherford, N.J. at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

In a sign of our times, onlookers' first reactions were not to check on the welfare of the 71-year-old driver or the teenager hit by the car. Instead, they grabbed their smartphones to capture images of the crash.

Eventually, the crowd did help those injured in the accident. An 18-year-old woman escaped unhurt while the driver sustained minor injuries. Police told NBC New York that charges will most likely not be filed. It was unclear what caused the accident.
