Two employees, one of whom is pregnant, were buried by debris after the crash on Tuesday night.

Incredibly, both survived, and talked to Action News about their ordeal.

"We were talking, and this car just came and hit us, and I felt the push and we just went flying," said Anneliza Maoene.

The woman who is pregnant, Genesis Tejada, said the baby is fine.

Police say the SUV was stolen and was being driven by an 18-year-old. Officers say he was speeding and collided with another car head-on, and eventually slammed into the store.

He was arrested. A second person inside the car is still on the run.

"All my family have been calling and asking 'are you okay, are you okay?" My mom was freaked out," Genesis said.

"I thought that I was dead. I was just like, 'What am I supposed to do?' I was trying to see if she was okay. I was like, 'Genesis, get down in case the car explodes!' It was scary, it was a scary situation," Anneliza said.

Genesis and Anneliza are still shaken up and in disbelief every time they see the video.

They feel an angel was watching out for them.

"I think it was my sister, because she passed away last year. But ever since I have I felt like I have been protected," said Anneliza.
