TULSA, Oklahoma -- A woman was injured after driving her car right into an east Tulsa auto part store. Police say the woman suffers from a medical condition.

It happened just after 8:30 Monday night at the O'Rielly Auto Part store at 3100 South Garnett.

EMSA is also treating a child on the scene who was in the car at the time of the crash. The child's injuries appear to be minor. No one inside was hurt.

"I think it was a medical issue. I don't know if it was a seizure, but I think it was probably more likely," said Tulsa Fire District Chief Michael Atchison.

The Tulsa Fire Department is trying to pry the car from the building. They're cutting an even larger hole to get the car out.

The car entered the back of the store, damaging a nearby Salon. A woman in the salon had an anxiety attack after the crash and was treated by paramedics.
