Transcript for Toddler Nearly Hit by Car Crashing Into Store: Caught on Tape
stunning near-miss caught on tape. The driver, 84 years old. The toddler in her path, less than 2. Thank goodness, everyone is okay. And abc's rob nelson has the harrowing story. Reporter: A surveillance camera catches this 16-month-old toddler as he runs into his family's store and goes into his dad's office. But no one could have seen this coming.

The little boy's dad, marion harklerode, who owns that store, looked on in horror. I saw him kind of buckle backwards. You know? And he flew backwards. You know? I mean, airborne. Brother, calleb, was inside the store, at the moment of impact. Nobody knew what had just happened. I mean, it was -- it was just chaos.

Efforts are under way to revoke her license. Thanks very much. Now, we're going to turn to amy over here. She made a startling confession
