Two people are in the hospital after a car crashed into a building in Surrey.

On Tuesday, April 9, at around 7:50 pm, the Surrey RCMP received several 9-1-1 calls reporting a vehicle driving into a building.

Members of the RCMP, ambulance, and fire department attended the scene and found that a grey Holda Civic, driven by an adult woman, had gone off the road and crashed into the building.

An exterior wall of the structure was badly damaged and a man working inside the building had part of the wall collapse on to him.
