2 hurt as car hits building in Md.

Two women were taken to a hospital after their vehicle crashed into a mortgage company’s building in the Beltsville area of Prince George’s County Monday morning, authorities said.

The incident occurred just before 9 a.m. in the in the 10700 block of Rhode Island Avenue in Beltsville.

The vehicle apparently accelerated over the sidewalk and through the glass window of the one-story building, fire officials said.

The women, one in her 40s and one in her 60s, initially refused medical treatment but were later transported to a hospital for check-ups. Neither had injuries that were thought to be life-threatening, authorities said.

The cause of the crash remains unclear. No one inside the building was hurt, and the damage mostly cosmetic, fire officials said.
