Car crashes into CNN Center in downtown Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) – Police are investigating after a car crashed into a lobby at CNN Center, the news network’s headquarters in downtown Atlanta.

Atlanta’s WSB-TV reports that the Mercedes Benz shattered the glass entryway of the lobby on the building’s north side around 4 a.m. Friday.

The car smashed through a large panel of glass and came to rest in the middle of the lobby. By 7 a.m., workers were sweeping glass shards from the floor. The lobby was open, but yellow tape blocked off the section where the car went through and a section of glass of around 10 feet high and about 15 feet long was completely gone.

Police say two people were in the car at the time of the crash. Information about their conditions wasn’t immediately available.
