LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a car crashed through the wall of a Los Angeles convalescent home for seniors, narrowly missing a patient in bed.

Police Sgt. Kara Nightingale tells City News Service the woman in bed and the driver of the sedan both were extricated by firefighters with heavy rescue equipment.

Nightingale says the driver, an employee of the facility in the Palms area, accidentally backed through a wall and a window late Sunday.

The crash was determined to have been an accident so there was no arrest. Officials didn't give details on what caused the accident.

The woman in bed and the driver were transported to a hospital but were apparently uninjured.
