Car hits building on Connecticut Ave. NW

By Terri Rupar

A car hit a building housing a nail salon and sandwich shop Thursday night after leaving Connecticut Avenue in Northwest Washington, authorities said.

The 65-year-old driver of the car may have suffered a medical emergency, which could have caused the vehicle to run up on a sidewalk in the 4400 block of Connecticut Avenue about 7:30 p.m., said Pete Piringer, a fire department spokesman. The man was taken to a hospital in critical condtion.

No other injuries were reported. The car did not cause significant damage to a nail salon and Quiznos restaurant but did plow through cafe chairs on the sidewalk, Piringer said.

These stories of geezers and old crones plowing into stores and mowing down pedestrians on sidewalks are becoming much too common.

Huh, I like to get my hair cut at the Cut-n-Edge, just on the other side of Quizno's from the nail salon...
