Car slams into NY firehouse

The driver of the car reportedly lost consciousness at the wheel


EAST PEMBROKE, N.Y. — A car rammed into a N.Y. firehouse Thursday, causing enough damage for it to be shut down for as long as two weeks.

The vehicle was heading east down a road when it crossed over into the westbound lane then slammed into a median and went airborne and flew into the East Pembroke Fire Hall.

The woman driving the car blacked out at the wheel because of a medical condition, according to WGRZ.

She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

While repairs are made to the firehouse, fire trucks are being kept at nearby towing company.
