BARTLETT, TN (WMC) -

A car crashed through a Bartlett Christian bookstore narrowly missing the people working and shopping inside on Sunday.

With a hole where a store window used to be, crime scene tape was seen marking off the area where workers now call a miracle.

Witnesses say a Red Hyundai came speeding through a Christian bookstore in Bartlett, leaving glass everywhere. The driver was reportedly trying to park when the accident happened on Stage Road.

About 10 customers were inside, as well as two kids and two employees. The good news — everyone is OK.

"It was concerning from the start, but we feel like we have a miracle here today," said Melissa Tichenor. "We're just so grateful that no one was harmed, it's a miracle."

There's no word on possible charges. Calls to Bartlett police have not been returned at this time.

The bookstore will be closed for a few days while they clean up the aftermath.
