    A vehicle crashed into an apartment building in North Park Saturday morning sending two people to the hospital, according to police.

    Police said a four-door Kia sedan carrying a driver and one passenger lost control on the road for unknown reasons around 11:30 a.m.

    According to authorities, the car drove through a wooden fence, went 50-feet down an embankment and hit a tree before colliding with the Canyonwood Apartments building on the1800 block of Upas Street.

    The two people in the car were pulled from the wreckage and transported to the hospital, police said.

    One patient sustained back injuries while the driver suffered severe head injuries and a laceration to their hand.

    More information on each victim's current condition has not yet been released.

    Authorities said drugs or alcohol did not play a role in this crash.

    No other vehicles were involved in the collision.

    Police said no injuries were reported from residents inside the apartment building.

    However, authorities deemed at least two units in the building “uninhabitable” until extensive damages caused by the crash are repaired.

    Two additional apartment units had their gas turned off following the crash, but police said their gas has since been restored.
