A driver lost control of a car and crashed into the glass front of a busy New Jersey target store Thursday morning, leaving at least three people hurt.

The driver slammed into the Target store off Route 38 in Cherry Hill a little after 10 a.m. The Hyundai sedan appeared to come to rest almost entirely inside a glass section of the storefront -- into a section of shelves where to-go orders are kept.

Police and rescue crews were on scene. Someone could be seen being loaded into an ambulance when SkyForce10 arrived a short time later.

In total, three people were hurt, Cherry Hill police said. The driver and a Target employee were among those hurt. Everyone is expected to be OK, police said.

The store sits well off Route 38 and it isn't believed that the sedan came from the busy roadway. Police said it appeared the driver -- a customer at the store -- suffered some sort of medical emergency and hit the gas instead of the brakes.

Crews continued to investigate through the rest of the morning.
