BOSTON (AP) - Police say three people were hospitalized after a sport utility vehicle crashed through the front of a barbershop in Boston’s Mattapan neighborhood.

Police spokesman James Kenneally says the accident happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Primo’s Barber Shop on Morton Street.

WBZ-TV reports witnesses at the scene said the driver of a dark blue Jeep appeared to be chasing after a man who ran into the barber shop. The Jeep then drove into the storefront and was lodged about halfway into the barber shop with patrons pinned underneath.

The driver remained at the scene and police say he has not been charged.

Kenneally says three people were taken to local hospitals for treatment of injuries that aren’t life-threatening.

Owner Jose Primo says he’s grateful that no one was killed.
