    The building also has a wellness center that includes a gym into which the driver crashed. Shattered glass and other debris surrounded the car.

    [NATL-V-LA] Dramatic SoCal Car Chases Defy Logic, Common Sense
    Southern California is notorious for its police pursuits. Recent months have seen a remarkable assortment of chases, from the infamous "money toss," to the man huffing on colorful balloons as police close in, to the pink-hoodied driver who sprinted from a getaway car while talking on her cell phone. As the moments from eight recent chases captured here illustrate, car chases defy logic and common sense, putting the police and the public at risk.

    "It went through a wrought-iron gate and into the gym, where are there some really heavy pieces of equipment," one of the pharmacy owners told NBC4.

    It was not immediately clear whether the driver was the only occupant in the car at the time of the crash.

    No injuries were reported. The vehicle was removed from inside the building later Monday morning.

    Building inspectors are expected to arrive Monday morning to determine the extent of damage.
