An Illinois Man's Haircut Appointment Was Really Important

A man who reportedly drove his vehicle through the window of a Niles, IL seafood market Wednesday morning wasn’t going to let that interfere with his plans to get a haircut. The 80-year-old man had driven his vehicle into the front window of Captain Alex Seafood. He then got out of the vehicle and walked several doors down to his hair appointment. Photos taken of the scene show a vehicle lodged in the seafood store’s front window. “He was as calm as could be, getting his hair cut,” said his barber. Police figure he mistook the gas pedal for the brake, jumped over the parking block and drove into the building, breaking the window and door,”  After the barber had finished cutting his client’s hair, the man acknowledged his involvement in the crash. “He said, ‘Oh, yeah. That’s my car. I had an accident. I have to go now. That was me the police were looking for.’ Because the crash occurred on private property, no tickets were issued to the driver.
