Car crashes into Fire Station No. 9

A car slammed into a La Jolla fire station the night of Nov. 3, coming close to firefighters but causing no injuries, authorities said.

Three people were in the car when it veered off the road and took out a section of the wall at San Diego Fire-Rescue Department’s Station 9 on Ardath Lane near Torrey Pines Road.

The crash, which happened about 7:30 p.m., severed a natural gas line to an exterior barbecue. A San Diego Gas & Electric crew was called in to make repairs to the line.

A structural engineer was evaluating the extent of damage to the building, according to a Fire Department tweet.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
