    Car crashes into WTNH News 8 building in New Haven

    NEW HAVEN — A car slammed into News 8/WTNH's office building Sunday morning, police said.

    The crash took place around 4 a.m. at the corner of State and Elm streets, according to New Haven Police Chief Karl Jacobson.

    Jacobson said two people fled the scene following the crash. The vehicle, a white car, is not registered to an individual, he said.

    Kevin Copeland, editor for WTNH, tweeted a video of the security footage showing a white car speeding into the building from the right front side at around 4:10 a.m.

    Police are searching for the identity of the driver, "Good Morning Connecticut" co-anchor Laura Hutchinson tweeted.

    Hutchinson posted photos of the crash's aftermath, with the car doors left wide open and the car slammed into the building from its front ride side next to a staircase.
