Downtown driver crashes into parked car, building

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It wasn't the fog, but speed that caused one driver to smash into a parked car, and then into a building downtown Thursday.

The violent crash happened just before midnight near 10th Avenue and B Street.

The driver was speeding when he slammed into the parked car and went into a nearby building.

One witness heard the crash and saw a group of people try to help the man.

"I heard screeching marks and then just a loud explosion and metal being dragged. Then, all of a sudden, I heard a bunch of girls screaming and people running to the car. It was smoking, but they couldn't get in," said Craig Stromph.

Rescuers had to cut the man out of the car.

Police say he suffered minor injuries. No word if the driver will face charges.
