CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Two people were taken to the hospital in serious condition after the car they were in crashed into a building in downtown Cleveland early Thursday morning.

The accident occurred around 5:30 a.m. near the intersection of Superior Avenue and West 6th Street, near the Veterans Memorial Bridge.

A SUV crashed into the side of the Rockefeller building, scattering concrete debris and vehicle parts over the roadway.
