LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a driver has been arrested for a crash that sent another car smashing into a check-cashing business.

Sgt. Norma Vargas tells City News Service that a car ran a red light in South Los Angeles on Thursday shortly before midnight. It hit another car and pushed it through the front window of the check cashing business.

No one in the store was hurt but firefighters had to use the jaws of life to free the driver, who was treated for cuts and bruises.

Vargas says the other driver ran away but was caught about four blocks away and arrested for investigation of hit-and-run driving.
