A car smashed into a coin laundry early Monday, injuring the owner’s son after an argument involving the driver, according to authorities and witnesses.

Adolphus Melvin, 24, and Sabrina Bullard, 42, were standing outside of Wash World at Northwest 58th Street and 27th Avenue around 2:30 a.m. when a woman took aim with her car, striking Melvin and crashing into the business, Miami-Dade police said.

Witnesses say that a woman got into an argument with the owner and her son earlier and sprayed an unknown liquid at them. She then got into her beige, four-door Chevy Caprice, gunned it through the front glass doors of the laundry business, and drove off.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue took Melvin to Jackson Memorial Hospital with a fractured leg. He is listed in stable condition.

Police are searching for the driver who is believed to be in her late 20s, has long blonde braids and was last seen wearing a tight green shirt and multicolored leggings. Police believe she is five-foot-two and 180 pounds.
