Car crashes into Sycamore nail salon

SYCAMORE – Kenny Huynh said he was sweeping up in the Pro Nails salon he owns at 1170 Dekalb Ave. in Sycamore about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when he heard a loud bang and saw some debris fall from the ceiling.

He looked out to see an SUV had collided with the wall between his store and the Sycamore Cafe next door.

Sycamore police Sgt. Steve Watry said the driver was trying to pull into a parking spot when she hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.

He said there were no injuries and tickets are not issued on private property.

“The damage was structural and to the vehicle,” Watry said.

The cafe next door did not sustain any damage inside.

Outside, the brick column was cracked and pushed inward. Parts of the wall inside the salon were pushed into the waiting area.

Sycamore Fire Chief Pete Polarek and city Director of Building and Engineering John Sauter inspected the building after the crash.

Huynh said he didn’t know yet if the salon would remain closed or for how long.
