Vehicle Crashes Into Northgate Mall

A vehicle jumped the curb and went through a wall at Northgate Mall this afternoon.

At 3:00 p.m. SRPD received numerous 9-1-1 calls reporting that a car had collided with a wall at the Northgate Mall.  Initially the callers said the car was into the Northgate Theater, but officers arrived to find a Honda Accord through the east wall of the Sears store.  The elderly female driver was the lone occupant and still in the vehicle when help arrived.  She was extricated by San Rafael Fire Department and transported to Marin General Hospital with serious injuries.  The car came to rest in a storage area and no one inside the store was injured.  SRPD’s Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) is investigating the collision.
