Winterville police say it turns out the SUV that landed inside a hair salon Wednesday afternoon was a rental vehicle driven by a woman who wrecked her other car just five days earlier.
It was the second time in five days that the woman had been cited by Winterville police because of a car crash.
Police say Barbra Snuggs was driving a rental vehicle after another crash last Friday.
The latest crash happened when police say Snuggs was pulling up to A Woman's Glory Beauty & Nail Salon off East Main Street around 3:00 p.m. They say the woman accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
She was cited for unsafe movement after the rental vehicle ended up inside the business.
On March 25th police say Snuggs' vehicle struck a telephone box at Davenport and Forlines Road. In that accident she was cited for failing to yield the right of way.
No one was hurt in either crash.
A sports utility vehicle landed inside a Winterville beauty salon this afternoon and fortunately no one was injured.
Fire and rescue crew were called to A Woman's Glory Beauty & Nail Salon off East Main Street right around 3:00 p.m.
The SUV plowed through the business' front doors, leaving only one of them still standing. The vehicle ended up some 15 feet inside the business. Several people were inside the business at the time.
Winterville police say the woman driving the SUV was attempting to park in front of the business and hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
The brick building itself doesn't appear to be impacted, but there is damage to the inside of the shop.
A short time late the SUV was driven out of the business.
