Even though "the carnage is pretty bad . . . we really are very lucky," said Hiru Moolchandani, 54, an owner of the Patchogue audio systems business that was slammed into Tuesday by a driver whom police said had stolen an SUV. Only four employees and two customers were in the store, she said, with one woman suffering "nonlife-threatening injuries" and refusing medical attention at the scene, Suffolk County police said.
Though all involved are OK "and well . . . unfortunately, the building itself wasn’t so lucky," according to the Facebook page of Avenue Sound, 260 E. Main St.
