PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two people were injured, one seriously, when a van smashed through the front window of a beauty salon in Northeast Philadelphia Wednesday morning.

The incident happened at about 11:30 a.m. at Angie’s Beauty Salon on Castor Avenue in the Rhawnhurst section.

According to authorities, the 65-year-old driver of a Ford Aerostar minivan meant to put the vehicle in reverse, but instead put it in drive and accelerated through the plate glass window of the shop and ended up several feet inside.

A 50-year-old patron inside the salon was injured and was taken to Aria Health Torresdale Hospital with a possible broken hip and cuts.

The driver suffered minor injuries. So far, no charges have been filed against the driver.

The incident remains under investigation.
