(WFLA/NBC NEWS) — Five people suffered minor injuries when a car slammed into a Tampa, Florida business Wednesday.

Shortly before noon, five customers and three employees were inside the Watch Doctor when the car crashed through the front wall.

Marco Ramirez was one of the employees working at the time.
