Driver crashes into building at condo complex

Bridgeport police say an 86-year-old woman is in the hospital after crashing her car into a building.



Officials say the woman was stopping at the Inwood Condominium Complex at 3200 Park Ave. on Saturday morning to pick up two friends. They say she drove her new Mercedes up to the front gate to buzz into the complex, and accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake.



The driver crashed through the gate before crashing into a building. She also took out a small tree along the way.



Police say the woman was conscious when she was taken to a local hospital. There is no word on her current condition.



Receptionist Amanda Gonzales says nobody was in the path of the car when it crashed into the building.
