A 50-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition after his car apparently struck a building in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.

Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said medics pulled the man from a car that overturned after hitting a building at 5510 E Marginal Way S. The building was damaged in the 11:45 a.m. crash, but is structurally safe, Moore said.

Moore said it took members of the department’s technical-rescue team 10 minutes to free the man from the car.
