Car crashes into Beacon Hill building early Tuesday

There is not points to locate on the map

A Beacon Hill building being used as a church was damaged early this morning when a car smashed into it.

Shortly before 2 a.m., police got a call that a car had rammed into a building in the 2100 block of 14th Avenue South, according to Seattle Police spokesman Mark Jamieson. Witnesses said they saw a man running away from the crash.

Police found an unoccupied 1996 Oldsmobile inside the building, which is being rented out for use as a church. Church elders live above in apartments, Jamieson said.

The building was evacuated until city officials can determine if it sustained any major structural damage, Jamieson said.
