ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– An insurance company will have to file its own claim after a woman crashed her car into a State Farm Insurance office Saturday morning.

It happened at about 10:45 a.m. at the intersection of S. Broadway and Belleview in Englewood. Police said the 70-year-old driver was the only one in the car when it crashed into the building.

Witnesses told police the woman stopped midway into her turn from Broadway onto westbound Belleview when a car behind her honked and she rapidly accelerated into the building.

Police said the woman was trapped in her car until they could get the tow truck on scene because her car door was wedged against the wall and she couldn’t get out.

The woman was taken to Swedish Medical Center. She was listed in critical condition Sunday morning. Police said they don’t suspect alcohol or drugs, but said she seemed disoriented. They believe she suffered a medical condition at the time of the accident and will not be cited.

    This wonderful woman happens to be my good friend. She suffered a medical episode which caused her to lose control. She lies in a hospital on life support.

    It upsets and frightens me how people can be so callous and cruel. What if this was your mother… your sister… your friend??

    I blame the impatient driver behind her for honking their horn which made her jump. A lot of people honk when it isn’t necessary. I was almost hit as pedestrian because someone honked making a car turn.
