Car crashes into building in Beltsville

By Washington Post editors

Two women were transported to a hospital after their vehicle crashed into a mortgage company’s building Monday morning in the Beltsville area of Prince George’s County, authorities said. Neither appeared to be seriously hurt.

The incident occurred just before 9 a.m. in the 10700 block of Rhode Island Avenue. The women’s vehicle apparently accelerated over the sidewalk and through the glass window of the one-story building, fire officials said. The two women, one in her 40s and one in her 60s, initially refused medical treatment but were later transported to the hospital for checkups. 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 was mostly cosmetic, fire officials said.
