The vehicles, one a large Range Rover, caused extensive damage to two shops that are next door to each other. No-one at the premises were hurt.
The damaged shops were Be Beautiful Hair and Beauty Salon and Bus Stop Bakery and Tea Rooms.
In a a social media post the salon said: “Unfortunately we are closed until further notice. We will be sorting through clients to see what we can do, for example, working in another salon temporarily or going mobile.”
On Tuesday (August 29) in a Facebook post the salon added that it had set up a temporary salon in a new location in St Leonards.
In the post, Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty salon said: “To any clients booked in I will go through my books and send out the address. If any clients cant get there I may be able to give a lift if its near my route to work or these is a bus stop very close. Or I may be able to do some clients mobile at their own homes.”
Following the incident, the road was closed for some time on Saturday morning, while the vehicles were removed.
