ECHO PARK (CBS) — A pregnant woman was struck by a car after the driver lost control of the vehicle and drove into a pizzeria Tuesday evening.

The owner of Buona Pizza Italian Restaurant told KCAL9 that he was working in the kitchen when he heard a loud crash at about 5 p.m.

When Israel Palacios came out, he found a Toyota sedan had driven into the front of his pizzeria and there was a woman screaming from underneath the car.

The woman had been dragged into the restaurant from the sidewalk and was found under the car, bleeding and vomiting.

Palacios told KCAL9 the woman said she was pregnant.

She was transported to County-USC hospital for treatment. Her condition is unknown.
