Two people were transported to the hospital for minor injuries after a car crashed through the front of a Ulta Beauty around 1 p.m. Tuesday. 

The collision occurred shortly after a second vehicle, traveling westbound in the parking lot, struck a Buick that was backing out of a parking space in front of the store, according to Weatherford police. 

The driver of the Buick, 30-year-old Kimberly Scott, put the car in forward to move back into the parking spot, but the car reportedly accelerated, jumped the curb and traveled through the glass window of the store. 

It came to rest about two car lengths inside the building. 

“I thought it was like an IED or something going off,” one employee said about the scramble to move away from the vehicle. 

Scott was reported taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons. 

An employee struck by display tables was also transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. 

The driver of the other vehicle, identified as 59-year-old Lynn Walker, was reported uninjured. 

No citations or criminal charges were issued. 

The cosmetics store was turning away customers early Tuesday afternoon as employees and firefighters worked to clean up the shattered window and other damage.
