Car crashes into Verizon store, Holiday Hair in Palmer Twp.

PALMER TWP., Pa. - A single driver of a sedan crashed through the Verizon store in the Palmer Township Centre late afternoon Friday.

Assistant Chief of the Palmer Township Fire Department Jim Alercia reports once the vehicle entered the Verizon store it crashed through the separation wall and into the Holiday Hair store building.

The vehicle stopped to the rear of Holiday Hair.

Customers and hair dressers were currently working at the time of the crash. All escaped with no injuries. All patrons having their hair done were on the opposite side of where the car traveled, missing them by inches. 

The driver sustained minor injuries. 

Alercia says it appears to simply be a case of careless driving and adds that if any charges are filed they would likely be simple traffic offenses.
