A woman suffered minor injuries Wednesday afternoon when her vehicle crashed into a retail building in western Lawrence.

The accident happened shortly before 4 p.m. in the shopping center at Sixth Street and Monterey Way. The brick exterior of the Supercuts store was damaged.

The woman said her sandal may have been caught on the gas pedal, causing her to crash.

The vehicle’s airbag deployed during the accident. The driver suffered cuts but was not transported to the hospital.

No damage estimate was available Wednesday.

This is excessive. If you aren't happy with your haircut, don't tip.

Lawrence drivers are freestyling...

This particular cluster of events seems unusual. Perhaps our friends in the insurance industry can enlighten us about how common this sort of thing is.

Always heard about driving with driving with sandals; kinda mimics a Toyota problem.

The students are baaaack. Be careful out there people, young people who don't know how to drive have invaded our city.

Oh definitely. We all know people over the age of 22 simply don't crash their cars. It's a recorded fact.

I cannot watch the video, but does it say it was a young college student in there, because it doesn't in the write-up?

Ah, I finally got the video to work, but I don't have sound.

BUT, since when has Eric Holder been doing news for LJWorld?

It wasn't a student. Do you always talk without knowing all the facts?

Are you profiting from this hybridization of Shrek & KU? Somehow I doubt it. Maybe if you print & sell some Con 1 t-shirts...

Keep it up. Perhaps you'll receive a cease & desist letter from both Dreamworks and KU.

Cars don't hit buildings. People do.

We must put stronger regulations on cars AND buildings. A seven day cooling off period.

judging by the limited damage to her front bumper/the massive damage to the building, I'm going to have to say that building has some terrible structural engineering.

Or mad props to Acura for THEIR engineering

Must've been coming in to the parking stall pretty fast to hop a curb and damage a brick wall...

comparative negligence, sandal wedgie and building located in unsafe location. The insurance companies will sort it all out. '
