PASADENA — A driver was hospitalized in stable condition after crashing a car into a building late Monday, officials said.
The crash was reported just after 8 p.m. at 44 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.
Firefighters responded to reports of a crash to find a Cadillac sedan that had gone through a metal roll-up door of a film production equipment rental company and ended up about 20 feet inside the business, fire officials said.
“We had to extricate — use heavy tools to remove the patient from the vehicle,” Derderian said.
The driver was taken to a hospital in stable condition, she added.
No on inside the building was hurt.
“Fortunately, it was later in the evening, so there were no occupants inside,” Derderian said.
