New surveillance video shows the moment a car slammed into a Clear Lake beauty salon, sending bystanders running to help.

The K and G Beauty Salon on El Dorado near Clear Lake was open Wednesday morning when the car slammed through its entrance. One customer was hurt, but, we are told, is okay at a local hospital.

Owner Kim Nguyen says the crash sounded like an explosion, and glass went flying everywhere.

"I heard a loud boom, (and) thought the world was coming to end," Nguyen said. "Then, (the) crash and glass fell all over, then I look and I see the whole car is in my shop."

One of the stylists told ABC13 Eyewitness News that a coworker pushed her out of the way just in the nick of time.

The driver of the car was not hurt. Nguyen says she knows her as a customer.

Houston police say the driver is a 75-year-old woman who attempted to stop but accelerated instead.

She's charged with failure to control speed.
