BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Instead of cutting hair, owners at the Firme Fades Barber Shop in Bryan spent their Sunday cleaning up after a pickup truck crashed through the side of the building.

Owners say the crash happened around 4:00 a.m. The shop, which is located at the corner of Dodge Street and South College Avenue, was closed at the time, so there was no one inside and no injuries were reported.

The barber shop posted on Facebook: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Firme Fades will have to shut down for a few days. If you had any appointments, we will contact you and reschedule you for a later date as this was totally unexpected…follow our page for more information on our reopening!”

The business owner says the driver of the pickup truck initially left the scene Sunday morning but later returned to take responsibility.

“Yeah, I was surprised the driver did come back and take responsibility for his actions, you know, probably a little nervous from the incident last night but he did take responsibility and we’re working together and working as a team to get everything back situated,” said owner, Isidro Rodriguez.

A spokesperson for Bryan police tells KBTX this is an active hit-and-run investigation but no arrests have been made.
