An elderly woman in Palm Beach County drove her car into a man on a scooter and continued on to her hair appointment, police said.

Louise Davidson, 77, was arrested Thursday for leaving the scene of a crash involving injuries, Boynton Beach police said.

Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said the woman was turning right when she veered into the path of the oncoming scooter that had the right of way. The man was thrown onto the windshield and then fell to the road, she said.

Police said they later spotted the woman's car after she had her hair appointment.

Authorities said the man suffered scrapes all over his body. The injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
