    SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A woman on her way to hair appointment crashed her car through the hair salon.
    Della Miller, 73, crashed into the Tina’s Hair Pros’s windows Wednesday, knocking one customer six feet across the room, Soldotna police officer Marvin Towle said. The parking area in front of the salon was snow-covered.
    Miranda Nelson, a stylist, said she was in the back room when she heard the crash.
    ‘‘I thought a bomb had gone off,’’ Nelson said.
    Two large plate-glass windows were destroyed, walls were damaged, and the stonework front outside the salon was smashed, police said. Towle estimated damage to the building to be at least $15,000, and the car at another $2,500.
    Miller, who was not injured, was not cited for the crash.
    She proceeded with her hair appointment.
