Shocking footage from America shows the moment a car ploughed into a shop, crushing a customer between shelves.

CCTV shows the man walking around the petrol station in New York on Monday as a white SUV rolls towards the building.

It smashes through the glass shop front and knocks two shelves together with the customer trapped between them in the carnage.

Miraculously, he manages to pull himself free from the debris and walks away without injury. The shop's owner said the man was able to walk to an ambulance.

The female driver of the SUV was taken to a nearby hospital but is believed to have escaped serious injury.
