THE BRONX - A woman was injured after crashing her car into a hair salon in the Bronx Tuesday, according to police.

It happened at 763 E. 169th Street around 7:20 a.m.

Surveillance video recorded at a business nearby shows the woman's Nissan jumping the curb and crashing into a parked minivan before slamming into the Nubian Hair Studio, and also knocking down construction scaffolding narrowly missing a man who was standing outside the building.
