Metairie, LA — A 73-year-old woman crashed her SUV into the front of a Metairie beauty salon Thursday afternoon, March 8, 2012, which left six people injured. The automobile accident occurred around 2 p.m. at Le Salon Cheveux, located at 3544 W. Esplanade Avenue, reported NOLA.com.

According to reports, the unidentified driver drove through the front window when she accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.

One customer was reportedly sitting in a chair in front of the window when the SUV came crashing through, throwing that customer through the beauty salon.

Responding emergency crews rushed five women, ages ranging from 59 to 92, to the East Jefferson General Hospital emergency room in Metairie. Three people were treated and released.

The building and vehicle were badly damaged in the accident.

The SUV driver has not been cited at this time, because police are consulting with the district attorney’s office.
