COLORADO SPRINGS – One man was transported to a local hospital after losing control of his car and crashing into a building in Colorado Springs Wednesday afternoon.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts on E Old Broadmoor Road. Officials said the man lost control of the car and drove into the building.

Crews on scene extricated the man and transported him to a local hospital with unknown injuries, CSFD said. Authorities on scene said no drugs or alcohol are being suspected at this time.

The store has since been closed and will reopen once the car is removed.
