The solo-vehicle crash occurred just before 2 a.m. in the 10900 block of Kling Street, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The driver was trapped inside the vehicle following the crash and had to be removed by emergency personnel, Humphrey said. The condition of the trapped person was unknown.

Video from the scene showed a dark-colored car partially inside Metropolis Bikes after it crashed through a street-facing wall. The shop is located on Lankershim Boulevard at the corner of Kling Street.

Authorities have not identified the driver and there was no word on whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

The city Department of Building and Safety would need to assess any structural damage to the building, Humphrey said.
