Nothin Pretty Bout Sudz Beauty Salon


Uptown_Accident_1806, originally uploaded by Black Java.

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.

I can't believe someone lived in a place with walls the color of *THAT PINK!!!!*

I drive past that place every morning and it totally kills me.

Really, that surprises me. If i owned a business that got destroyed like this i would relocate. I was hoping something else would go in this area instead but that's just me. Do you have a link to an article or something? The ladies who come across this post might want to know for sure.

In regards to the person that said that "I can't believe someone lived in a place with pink walls." No one actually lived there, it was the guy who manages all the buildings little jack shack, if you were there when they pulled the van out, you would have seen a vast collection of porn literally cascading from the second floor apartment.

Nice story Anonymous. I'm not sure if this is true or false. I do however have a funny picture in my head of porn cascading from the second floor.

See this is why I let anonymous folk post comments.
