BEL AIR, Md. — Maryland State Police are investigating an incident where a vehicle crashed into a building.

On Tuesday around 10:40 a.m., troopers arrived to the 1300 block of Belair Road for a report of a vehicle that crashed into a building. Upon arrival, they discovered that a Chevy minivan had driven completely into the structure.

The building, which housed four businesses, was occupied at the time of the incident.

No one in the building was injured and the driver was also uninjured.

He told troopers the steering malfunctioned while he was traveling south on Belair Road, which caused him to lose control of his vehicle.

However, due to the instability of the building, the minivan was not removed until it was safe to do so.

Officials said that this building was a Maryland State Police outpost beginning in 1923 until 1939 when the Bel Air Barrack was built.
