Vehicle Crashes Into Police Station NR19028sr

San Pedro: The Los Angeles Police Department Harbor Detectives are investigating a car crash at the Harbor Area station this morning. At around 4:45 a.m., a vehicle maneuvered past some exterior barriers and drove into the lobby of the station. The female driver attempted to pull out, but was trapped by one of those barriers and was unable to drive off. The lobby was closed at the time and no one inside was injured, nor was the driver and her infant passenger.

Officers took the woman into custody and are trying to learn what her intentions were to determine what if any charges need to be filed. A temporary mobile substation has been established to ensure operations at our Harbor Division continue normally. We are also communicating with our facility services on the safety and structural integrity of the building as well as addressing future safety concerns regarding this type of incident.

Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters "LAPD."
