This is the terrifying moment a car crashes into a cake shop filled with Christmas shoppers and flattens a table where two customers were sitting.
Customers were sitting inside Kake Temptations in Batley, West Yorkshire, when the silver Toyota Hatchback flew across the pavement, smashing the glass of the bakery.
It then collides with a table where two customers were sitting. The car narrowly misses the man, but the woman is flung across the café floor as a result of the impact.
Chairs and tables were dragged under the wheels and crushed before the driver managed to break seconds before hitting the deli counter.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the jaw-dropping crash that took place at 3.30 this afternoon.

People filming the inside of the eatery were heard gasping as the car, a nine-year-old Yaris Tr Vvt-I, hurtled into the building.
A man walking next to the café is seen jumping out of the way before turning round in shock.
The cake store is located on a sharp corner of the Commercial Street junction with Cross Street in Batley Town Centre.
The shop’s main window, which faces the road, was destroyed by the impact which tore off the car’s front bumper which can be seen lying in the middle of the café.
Police, fire fighters and ambulance crews all attended, and the scene was closed off for a forensic investigation.
Firefighters are seen at the bakery helping to clear up the broken glass from the street.
The Toyota is eventually seen being reversed out of the shop by one member of the fire service.
Police officers are then seen inspecting the car and looking at the damage to the business.
The car rolls over chairs and tables in its way, braking just in front of the deli counter. Kake Temptations will be closed until further notice
The owners said in a statement: ‘As many of you will be aware, unfortunately due to recent events we will be closed until further notice.
‘Thankfully, no injuries were recorded. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to be running back to normal as soon as possible.’
The bakery added that the ambulance service arrived at the scene very quickly and checked everyone.
Yorkshire Ambulance Service said it treated to two people at the scene but no one was taken to hospital.
