A car hit the front wall of the Concord Hair Boutique on Howard Street in Evanston about 2:40 this afternoon.

Update 7 p.m.:  Evanston Police Commander Joseph Dugan says the driver, a 19-year-old Chicago resident was trying to back out of the parking space but put the car into drive instead of reverse, and when he hit the gas the car went forward into the glass front of the salon.

No one was injured. The driver was cited for negligent driving and failure to have his driver’s license with him.

    The odds of hitting a hair salon while driving on the sidewalk on Howard Street are pretty high.
