Crash slams car into Family Hair Connection

Nov 9, 2018

A bizarre accident on Friday morning left a car nosed into Family Hair Connection on Dartmouth Street with all involved escaping injury.

According to Dartmouth Fire District 1 Chief Brad Ellis, the crash occurred at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 9 when a car traveling down Dartmouth Street was struck by a truck exiting a driveway, causing the car to spin into the 603 Dartmouth St. salon, pushing in the cinderblock wall.

“We were very lucky,” Ellis said, noting that the drivers, passengers, and those inside the building were all uninjured.

Cynthia Goulart-Ficher, the manager of the hair salon, said that the collision was a shock to those inside.

“We were inside, then all of a sudden, we heard a big bang,” Goulart-Ficher said. They looked over to see that part of the building was caving in.

She said one employee was about to start a perm, which would have put her and the client directly in the line of impact. Luckily, they hadn’t begun yet.
