Business owner devastated after stolen SUV crashes into building in Eastpointe
DETROIT – A beauty salon in East Point hopes to bounce back after a stolen SUV crashes into the building.
It happened early Monday (June 27) morning between 1 and 2 a.m. at Kim’s Hair Care on east of Eight Mile Road.
You can see all the damage left by the crash in the video player above.
The beauty salon was the result of a lot of hard work, and all that hard work came crashing down when an SUV drove into the building.
“It really breaks my heart, you know,” said Kimberly McAfee
McAfee can’t help but wonder why anyone would want to drive a stolen SUV into their business.
“I haven’t done anything wrong to anyone,” McAfee said. “So I don’t know why anyone would want to hurt me and show me hate when I’m only showing love.”
To make matters worse, the two people inside the car did not break in to steal anything. Surveillance video seen in the video player above shows the two culprits exiting and taking off moments after the crash.
“I thought it was really evil,” McAfee said. “I just feel like I really have to be careful because if someone did something like that for no reason, who knows what they’re capable of.”
The damage was so severe that McAfee is now reduced to working from home and at the nearby barbershop.
Barber Steadman Sims had a personal, up-close look at the struggle McAfee is currently going through.
“Man, it’s hurtful because you know people spend their hard-earned time and money to build something and take care of their family, and someone comes and destroys it for no reason, that’s screwed,” Sims said.
“I just feel bad for them, really,” McAfee said. “I feel like they need help. It’ll be fine. It’s just a minor setback. Everything happens for a reason. It could be worse, you know.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt. But McAfee says she is exploring options for changing locations as the investigation continues.
