A car slammed into a downtown Langley City barbershop on Monday at around noon, but fortunately no one was hurt.
The car, a red PT Cruiser, hopped the curb in the 20500 block of 56th Avenue and smashed the glass doors in the front of the Country Barber Shop.
Khadem, the barber there for the last four years, was cutting the hair of a client at the time, but didnt actually see the crash.
He just heard his door beings mashed, he said.
The driver, an elderly man using a walker, was checked over by Langley City firefighters and BC Ambulance personnel after the crash, but he was not taken to hospital.
The force of the crash moved some of the brickwork in the building off true by a couple of inches, as well as knocking out one of the glass doors. The front of the Cruiser suffered some damage from its impact with the brick building.
This is the most recent in a series of crashes that have seen drivers slam into buildings around Langley in the past year.
On May 13, four people were injured, two seriously, when a man in his 80s apparently mistook the gas pedal for the brake and drove through the glass front of the Natures Fare Market near 200th Street and the Langley Bypass.
In February, a car crashed into the BCAA office on the Langley Bypass. The car drove all the way into the waiting area, but didnt hit anyone, and no one was seriously hurt.
