PLANTATION, Fla. - A car crashed into a Plantation hair salon Thursday morning.

The crash occurred at a Hair Cuttery on Broward Boulevard.

Local 10 News has learned a 66-year-old woman accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Firefighters said the driver wasn't hurt, nor was anyone inside the hair salon.

"Everybody's fine," said Bobby Stern, who gets his hair cut at the barber shop. "One was a little shaken up, but she should be fine."

This isn't the first time a car has crashed through a business at the shopping plaza.

In February, a BMW crashed into a clothing store just a few shops away from the Hair Cuttery. Police said the driver in that incident claimed she was cut off by another vehicle and the car's carpet got caught on the accelerator.

No injuries were reported in either crash.
