The elephant (or car) in the room

car crashDon’t you hate when you’re getting a haircut and a car plows right through your hair salon? This customer certainly did. [1]

On Saturday afternoon, a 10-year-old boy getting his hair cut supposedly sat only five feet from where a car crashed through the glass of the salon.

The accident occurred at The Hair Cut Connection [2] on Euclid Avenue when the driver lost control of her car while parallel parking and drove onto the curb, reportedly destroying trash cans and recycle bins. The car continued to take down the brick wall of the salon and shatter its glass panel, parts of which struck the young boy as it fell. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. Had there been customers waiting for a haircut in the sitting area, the damage could have been horrific.

Shortly thereafter, Berkeley Police towed the car while contractors spent the day cleaning and boarding up the salon. It just goes to show that there’s never a dull moment in Berkeley … even if you are just getting a haircut.
