LOS ANGELES (AP) — A car plowed through the window of a busy South Los Angeles nail salon, injuring seven people, according to firefighters and the store's owners.

About a dozen people were in the salon just after 2 p.m. Tuesday when the car crashed into the business, causing minor cuts and abrasions, according to city fire spokesman Erik Scott.

The store owner's son Bryan Tran says the driver tried to back up and get away but he didn't get far before police arrived because of his smashed windshield and a front bumper that was dragging.

"We didn't really get near him, he was pretty aggressive when people were trying to get him to exchange information," said Tran.

Tran spoke to The Associated Press on behalf of his parents, who were uncomfortable speaking English.

Tran said the car came about 10 feet into the storefront and may have hit a woman who was picking her nail color at a display near the front of the store. He said his mother was at the store at the time.

Los Angeles police officer Bruce Borihanh says no other cars were involved in the crash, and its cause is under investigation. No arrests were made, but officers spoke to the driver and a passenger in the vehicle.
