LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police say an elderly woman hit the gas pedal instead of her brakes and crashed into the Morris Hair Design in St. Matthews.

Witnesses say the Lexus went straight into the front entrance and into the salon. It happened around 10 a.m. in the 4000 block of Dupont in St. Matthews. It happened at a condominium building with several first floor businesses.

Many people say it sounded like an explosion. The building manager says the woman was parking her car when she accidentally hit the accelerator.

The salon was not open at the time and nobody was hurt.

It shook condo owner, Stephen King, on the second floor out of bed.

"It sounded like a stick of dynamite went off. Bam!" King said.

The woman was going to an appointment at a hair salon next door. She is being checked out at the hospital but should be in good condition.

The salon has shattered glass everywhere and suffered thousands of dollars in damage.
