A woman was killed and two other people were injured after an SUV crashed into the enclosed service area of a car dealership in Mission Hills Wednesday morning, officials said.

The crash occurred around 9:10 a.m. at 11041 N. Sepulveda Blvd., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

A preliminary investigation revealed the driver accidentally hit the accelerator, lost control and plowed through the building, officials said. The driver, described only as an 84-year-old Mission Hills woman, struck two workers and a patron before her vehicle eventually stopped in the customer reception area of the Toyota dealership.

Witnesses described a patron being stuck under the vehicle after being dragged about 20 feet. She was freed by bystanders, including an off-duty nurse who started CPR.

That victim was taken to a trauma center in grave condition and later died, officials said. She was only described as being 55 years old. Officials initially gave her age as 56.

Two workers, who are 23 and 35 years old, sustained injuries that were described as not life-threatening, though one suffered a head wound.

Fire officials initially said four people had been injured, but the Los Angeles Police Department later said only three suffered injuries.

The driver of the vehicle did not appear to be injured and declined to be taken to a hospital.

She stayed at the scene and was speaking with LAPD officers.

No further details about the crash have been released.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed several firefighters and LAPD officers at the scene.

Video from inside the dealership showed the aftermath of the crash, with glass and debris strewn about.

A man who recorded the video told KTLA he had just gotten to the dealership to service his car when the crash occurred.

“Seconds from me going in the door, I heard a loud noise. Me and this other lady we jumped off and we looked back and this lady had just crashed inside, all the way inside, hitting some people,” said the man, who only wanted to be identified as Jose.

Though the investigation into the crash remains ongoing, it does not appear to be criminal in nature, police said.
