WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Crews are on the scene after a car crashed into a local nail salon around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31.

“The way the car drove in, the frame flew around,” said customer Keylli Zelaya. “It flew on top of us in the waiting area by the window, you know, and the car is just going straight into the people in there, you know what I’m saying?”

The Wilmington Police Department confirmed that the owner and a customer suffered non-life-threatening injuries following the accident at NC Nails located at 1929 Oleander Drive.

Wilmington Police said the driver of the car appeared to have suffered from a medical condition and no signs of impairment were detected.

According to witnesses and employees, there were seven people inside the nail salon at the time of the crash.

“We’re just sitting there laughing and conversating [sic] and the car just crashes in, like it crashes in,” said Zelaya. “It was crazy, like, and all I’m thinking is it happened out of nowhere, like in a blink of an eye literally.”
