Part of a building collapsed onto a car that crashed into it early Saturday in Hammond, Indiana.

A 31-year-old woman driving a 2008 Chevy Malibu crashed into the side of a residential building about 5 a.m. in the 500 block of Calumet Avenue. Part of the building then collapsed onto the car, according to the Hammond Indiana Police Department.
