Three people were hurt, including a 9-year-old girl, when a car crashed into Los Angeles International Airport late Sunday afternoon, the L.A. Fire Department said.
The vehicle went into an external utility room in Terminal 7’s upper level, the fire department said on Twitter. It’s the departures area for United Airlines and United Express and the crash occurred about 4:50 p.m., the Los Angeles Times reported.
The girl was a pedestrian and was in “serious” condition at a regional trauma center, the fire department said.
“It’s safe to say she’s fighting for her life,” fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
The driver, a 67-year-old man, and a passenger had non-life-threatening injuries.
According to the Times, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Roy Ceja said that the driver likely mistook the gas pedal for the break, causing the crash.
