By Steve Beck, Al Novack

YEADON, Pa. (CBS) – Two people were injured after a car careened out of control and slammed into a wall outside a fire station in Delaware County late Monday evening.

The crash happened at about 11 p.m. outside the Yeadon Fire Department station on South Church Lane.

According to investigators, a car somehow lost control and smashed into a retaining wall right outside the fire department.

The driver of the car was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in an unknown condition.

Authorities say an individual standing outside of the fire department when the crash occurred was struck with debris and suffered a broken ankle. That person was taken to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital for treatment.

It was not immediately known if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation.
