An employee of the business told NewsChannel 15 the driver had a hard time getting the car stopped and it rolled into the front door of Studio Tan. There were a couple people in the lobby, an employee at the front desk and two people in tanning beds. One person finished tanning before checking on the situation.

Police dispatch did not provide much information but NewsChannel 15’s crew on the scene saw an older woman with a cane sitting on a stretcher who was then led to a truck.

Police on the scene said the elderly driver refused treatment from emergency responders on the scene. No one else was in the car with her.

Studio Tan was still open for business. No one was injured in the crash.
