LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A woman drove a sport-utility vehicle through a storefront in the southwest end of the Las Vegas Valley Friday.

Larry Hadfield with Las Vegas Metro Police reported the wreck at a nail salon in the 7300 block of Jones Boulevard near Warm Springs Road about 1:30 p.m.

Police initially reported minor injuries, but there was no word whether anyone was being rushed to the hospital.

"[I] only see this on TV. I don't really see this happen," said Modern Nails owner Jane Phlong.

Phlong said she was in shock when the SUV plowed through the front of her store.

"I was sitting on a station, and I was looking at a newspaper, and my friend said, ‘The car's coming! The car's coming!' Then I got up and she just hit on the sidewalk," Phlong said. "My heart is still pounding right now."

"I think maybe she tried to put on the brake, but instead she ran into the shop," Phlong continued.

Phlong said there were about 10 customers in her salon when the crash occurred. One was struck by the SUV and taken to a hospital for treatment.

The salon was covered in broken glass and metal, and furniture was damaged. The damage is estimated at $10,000.
