Connecticut authorities say a car smashed through the front windows of a nail salon and ended up halfway into the shop, injuring eight people.

Police say a woman who was driving the Honda Civic apparently hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and the car plowed into Sun Nails in Milford on Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say three people were hospitalized in fair condition, while a fourth person was in stable condition. The other victims were treated for minor injuries.

The names of the driver and the victims were not released.

Witnesses say the most seriously injured victim was a salon employee who was sitting behind the front desk. They say she was pinned against a wall when the car hit the desk.
