SUV crashes into hair salon in Appleton

APPLETON - A hair salon in Appleton was looking for a new location, after an SUV hit that building and a house next door.

A 29-year-old Appleton man was arrested for drunk driving and other traffic offenses, after his vehicle plowed into the front door of the New Beginnings Hair Salon late yesterday morning. Police said the vehicle tore part through some of the outside brick - and then it spun into the neighboring house where siding and a porch were damaged. The SUV then veered into a street, where it was hit by another vehicle. Police said it was amazing that no one was injured.

Salon owner Kathy Skaar told the Appleton Post-Crescent that she didn't know as of yesterday where the business could relocate. It's been at its present site for 14 years. A glass business was also located in the same structure. But it was not damaged, and it's still open. A person living in an upstairs apartment is staying with someone else for now.
