Check it out. This dude passed out and plowed his Econoline van into Sudz Beauty Salon on 24th and Hennepin Sunday. It totally took out a whole corner of this 2 story brick building. No one was in the Salon @ the time of the accident and the apartment upstairs was vacant as well. The driver was trapped for like 30 minutes in all the rubble. Last time I heard he was in stable condition and he's gonna make it. Here's some shots I took on Monday. The van had already been removed by then.
While I was shootin' I noticed the vacuum in the apartment was still plugged in. Major Bummer man. Knowing that they just cleaned the place right before it collapsed was probably an extra blow they could have done without.
