FORT MYERS, Fla.-- A Fort Myers woman is recovering after a car plowed into a beauty salon.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at "Beverly's Hair Affair" on College Parkway.

Investigators say the driver accidentally hit the gas and crashed into the entrance of the store. The victim was reportedly treated for minor injuries after she was knocked out of her hair.

Fox 4 spoke to the salon's owner who says she's just glad everyone is okay, "The good thing is that everybody is really okay. We had a lady go to the hospital, and she's okay. Now, we just have to fix the front." 

The driver who caused the crash has since been cited for careless driving.
