Five people were injured when a car crashed into a Planet Fitness in Torrance Wednesday.

The crash, reported around 4:55 p.m. at the gym at 20040 Hawthorne Blvd., near Del Amo Boulevard, sent four people to hospitals, and injured one other person who did not want to be taken to a hospital, said Battalion Chief Bob Millea of the Torrance Fire Department.

Officials arrived on scene just before 5 p.m. and found a vehicle “all the way into the building to the back wall with one patient up on the hood of the vehicle,” Millea said.

A total of 24 firefighters responded to the crash and helped provide medical attention, Millea said.

Torrance police remained on scene to investigate the crash, Millea said.
