WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (KTVU) - Two people suffered major injuries, when the car they were riding in, went off a freeway and crashed into a building in Walnut Creek.
The CHP says it happened just before midnight.
The vehicle was going from Highway 24 to Interstate 680, when it went off the road, and plummeted onto a building at Boulevard Circle.
Firefighters said they were told that authorities were chasing the car, a BMW.
KTVU reporter Alex Savidge learned that Lafayette Police were chasing the car, but backed off, when the speed of the pursuit became too dangerous.
The building houses several businesses, including a hair salon and yoga studio.
The BMW ended up wedged inside a room, upside down.
The male driver and female passenger had to be extricated from the car.
They were taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with major injuries.
