TULSA, OK – A woman was hospitalized after crashing into the side of a building in north Tulsa Thursday evening.

According to News on 6, the accident occurred at about 4 p.m. near the intersection of 51st. Street and Peoria Avenue.

It is unclear what caused the woman to crash into the structure. Firefighters used sledgehammers to break through the wall and remove the car to access a ruptured gas line.

The building was evacuated while the repairs were made.

The woman in the vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
