FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman has severe leg injuries after she was hit by a car driven by an 81-year-old woman crashed into the hair salon in New Jersey.

Fairfield Township police say the crash took place just before 10 a.m. Monday at Hair Core Salon on Fairfield Road. Authorities say the victim was leaving the salon when the vehicle hit her, pinning her between the vehicle and the building.

The 60-year-old victim from Totowa was taken to a hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

The hair salon storefront suffered serious damage in the crash, with the force of the collision destroying a cinder block wall.

Fairfield Police Chief Anthony Manna says the driver refused treatment at the scene and possessed a valid driver's license. He says it is still unclear what caused the crash.

No summonses were issued to the driver.

Fairfield police impounded the 81-year-old's car to check its mechanics.
