CHICAGO (AP) _ A vehicle crashed into a TV station studio, jarring the building and startling a weekend anchor as he delivered the 10 p.m. news.

Police were investigating the Sunday night incident at WLS-TV's downtown studio. There were no injuries, they said.

A loud noise was heard inside the studio and on the air, startling weekend anchor Ravi Baichwal, officials said.

Police spokesman Officer David Banks said it was not immediately clear why the driver of a Mazda MPV with Indiana license plates plowed into the studio's reinforced glass wall.

ABC 7 President and General Manager Emily Barr said the incident might have been deliberate, but she couldn't be sure.
