Pick-Up Truck Slams Into Foley Business

Darlene's Hair Salon
A pick-up truck slammed into the Foley business Monday.

FOLEY, AL- Darlene Franklin was cutting Tony Broomfield’s hair when a pick-up truck plowed through the north wall of her salon.

A News 5 viewer captured these images of the freak accident. Most of the truck is “inside” the building.

The collision pushed Broomfield across the room. His hand and leg were injured in the accident. Broomfield’s injuries are not serious.

The driver got the chance to meet Franklin and Broomfield and apologize. Heather Porter, who is diabetic, says her blood sugar crashed and left her disoriented and semi conscious. Porter apologized at least a dozen times while we were there.

Porter is glad nobody was seriously hurt and is grateful to police, fire and EMT’s who treated her, comforted her and helped the others.
