A driver lost control and crashed a car into a two-story apartment building in Highland Park, injuring four people, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The crash took place about 10:15 p.m. Saturday at 118 N. San Pascual Ave., LAFD spokesman Nicholas Prange said.

Three people in the car were temporarily trapped. They were eventually freed by firefighters and taken to a hospital in critical condition, Prange continued.

One person in the building was also hurt. That person was taken to a hospital in fair condition, Prange said.

The LAFD pulled the vehicle from the building. A city building and safety team has yellow-tagged the structure for minor damage.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
