Car smashes through front of Linden, NJ furniture store
Linden police said a car on Sunday struck the Team Car Wash on the Roselle side of St. Georges Avenue and crossed the street and went through the front window of Timeless Furniture.
Baker Hamad told News 12 New Jersey he was in the back of his store when the car hit. The driver of the vehicle hit the gas instead of the brake, Hamad said.
The investigation is being handled by Roselle police because that was where the initial strike took place.
Roselle police on Monday morning did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?
We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
