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. 

No significant structural damage was caused by the crash, and officials say the hair salon was closed at the time of the accident. 

Police say the woman is expected to be OK.

They are still investigating the cause of the crash.
