Cadillac Crashes Into Lee Highway Beauty Salon

The scene wasn’t pretty, but thankfully nobody was injured when a Cadillac crashed into a Lee Highway beauty salon this morning.

The crash happened just before 11:30 a.m., when an elderly female driver lost control of her vehicle in a strip mall parking lot. The car slammed through the front into Saira’s Beauty Salon, at 5117 Lee Highway, coming to rest partially inside the store. The driver then backed out of the store and into the parking lot, leaving broken glass, twisted metal and smashed bricks in the car’s wake.

Customers and employees were inside the store at the time, but nobody was hurt, including the driver. The store is currently without a door, windows and the front air conditioning unit. The Caddy suffered some scratches and a broken sunroof.
