SOUTH SACRAMENTO - Two women are recovering after being hit by a van that slammed into their workplace. It happened late Saturday afternoon at the Exclusive Hair Salon along Fruitridge Road.
According to witnesses the driver of the minivan, Johnny Walker, was going as fast as 40 miles per hour when he slammed through the building. The impact wiped out glass windows, security bars and even caused the ceiling to collapse. At least one of the victims was pinned between the van and a wall. Both women were taken to the hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
Business owners are now asking police to enforce traffic laws in the area. One business owner says he set up shop less than four months ago and has already seen six accidents and two pedestrians hit.
