NYPD officer Emilia Rennhack had plans the night of June 28. Another officer was getting married. She wanted her nails done in a Long Island salon.

The 30-year-old officer never made it to the wedding. Instead, she and three other people were killed when a vehicle smashed into the Hawaii Nail & Spa at about 4:30 p.m., according to the New York Post.

Rennhack was a six-year veteran of the NYPD, who married NYPD Det. Carl Rennhack in September.

“My daughter-in-law was a wonderful woman,” mother-in-law Holy Rennhack said. “She was beautiful. She was very kind. She was very compassionate. She was very special.”

“I was very, very close to her,” she said, adding that her son was “very distraught right now.”

Should all drunk driving incidents be classified as felonies?

Video of the crash scene showed the destruction of the salon: shattered glass, a partially collapsed ceiling, and scattered pedicure chairs.

The Police Benevolent Association posted on Facebook, calling Rennhack’s death a “tragic loss.”

“Please join us in praying for her family, friends and coworkers,” the PBA wrote.

Steven Schwally of Dix Hills, who drove the vehicle, had reportedly been yelling at people from his vehicle prior to the crash, the Post said it was told by a source it did not name.
