Tonight a woman was charged with reckless driving after she floored her car into the front of a nail store.
Albemarle County police did not release the woman's name but they say the woman pulled into the Creative Nails parking lot on Seminole Trail and hit the gas instead of the brakes.
The driver walked away from the accident. No one inside the store was injured but the owner was pretty shaken up.
?I heard a big crash and I looked up and one of the TVs fell down and then I [was] standing there by myself. A car ran into my shop! It was scary. And then [the car started] smoking and we just ran out,? said Loan Hoang, Creative Nails owner.
There was significant damage to the building and it will remain closed for a few days.
