Newbie driver smashes SUV into hair salon in northwest China

A rookie driver smashes her SUV into a hair salon after pressing the accelerator too hard in northwest China.

The CCTV video, shot in the city of Kashgar in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region on December 21, shows a white SUV smashing into a hair salon through its glass door, pushing a hairdresser and a boy customer forward several metres.

Since the speed of the car was not too fast, no one was injured although the hairdresser and boy were given quite a fright.

The SUV driver was reportedly trying to park but pressed the accelerator too hard.

The driver and the hair salon owner have already reached an agreement to be compensated.
