2 Hurt in Torrance Car Crash on Carson Street and Hawthorne Boulevard
TORRANCE, CA (August 29, 2019) – Two people sustained injuries after a car crashed into a bank on Carson Street and Hawthorne Boulevard on August 25.
The police revealed that a blue Honda driver ran a red light on West Carson Street. He then lost control and crashed into the Chase bank on Carson Street and Hawthorne Boulevard intersection.
Torrance Fire Department Assistant Chief Jon Henderson revealed that the fire spread quickly through the building.
“It’s a bank, so it’s very secure,” Henderson added. “We had a little bit of an access issue. But our real issue was, the facade around the outside was a combustible metal and it was just stubborn, wouldn’t go out.”
Meanwhile, a police spokesperson revealed that responders transported the driver and a passenger to a hospital with injuries.
Authorities ruled out drugs and alcohol as a factor in the crash which remains under investigation. No other information has been provided at this time.
