UPDATE: Five hurt as pickup truck drives into salon at Hillcrest Mall

Clients and employees of a Richmond Hill salon got quite the jolt Friday as a white pickup truck came barrelling into the room.

Police believe the man who drove into Hillcrest Mall's N.R.G Salon and Spa at about 10:30 a.m. suffered a medical emergency that made him lose control of the truck. Four metal barriers just outside the salon's window were not able to stop the truck.
