A New Jersey woman has been charged with DUI after crashing her vehicle into a pizza shop May 3.

New video released Thursday shows the woman barreling her car into the front Flying Crust Pizza and casually getting out of the car as if nothing happened. Two employees had been behind the register at the time, according to ABC6.

Identified as Kimberly Killion, 34, of Pennsauken, New Jersey, the woman was allegedly driving the car under the influence. In the newly released video, Killion can be seen getting out of her car immediately.

“Are you taking any medication?” a store employee asked her. She replied, “No, I’m good. I’m good.” (RELATED: This Might Be The Dumbest Pizza Promotion Ever Run)

However, her blood alcohol level was reportedly higher than the legal limit.

Owner Garis Eddington, 37, had been in the store at the time of the crash. In the video, he can be seen sitting near the window as the car comes through the storefront.

After the crash, Killion can be seen attempting to get back in the car and reverse out of the pizza shop.

“When we came out, Garis was sitting on the stool outside the store,” said Diane Simpson of Pennsauken. “He was just in shock.”

Eddington originally didn’t think he was injured, but is planning to have an MRI done on both legs, his attorney said in a statement to ABC6.

Killion is a fifth grade math teacher and the daughter of the Mayor of Pennsauken Township Jack Killion, according to NJ.com.
