Car slams into barber shop

Posted: Updated:
ANCHORAGE, AK (NBC) - An Anchorage, Alaska business owner is dealing with one big headache after an SUV slammed into his barber shop Wednesday.

Police say the driver of the SUV was pulling in to park, but his foot slipped off of the brake pedal and onto the gas.

Owner Han Song was giving a customer a haircut before the collision, so what did he do after the accident?

After making sure no one was hurt and with the Jeep still in his shop he focused on his customer.

"My customer got a haircut, got a finished haircut," he said.

"The structural damage is the cement retaining wall, and then the glass curtail wall was taken out. You can see part of the structure here that's been damaged. So it's pretty significant damage," said insurance agent Herb Schlerath.

No one was hurt in the accident.

Police issued the driver a citation for failure to exercise due caution to avoid a collision.
