UPDATE: 4:15 p.m. | A 71-year-old woman and her 4-year-old grandchild are in stable condition at Harborview Medical Center after their car crashed into a house in South Seattle.

Responding firefighters had to cut the woman out of the silver SUV, where she was trapped, Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said. They took the 4-year-old out earlier.

The woman had picked up the child from a nearby school when she lost control of the car and crashed into the building, Moore said. The exact cause of the crash isn’t yet known.

Moore also didn’t have a damage estimate for the building, but he said firefighters determined that it is still structurally sound.

ORIGINAL POST | A silver SUV crashed into a house at South Victor Street and 57th Avenue South in South Seattle this afternoon.

The woman driving the vehicle called police around 2:30 p.m., saying she couldn’t get out, Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt said.

A witness who also reported the accident told dispatchers that a child may have been in the car, Witt said, but that report is unconfirmed. The extent of any injuries or damage to property is not known, though Witt said no one was in the house when the car hit it.

The Seattle Fire Department is on the scene, and we’ll post more details when they become available.
