CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A driver loses control of her car and crashes into a building.

The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. Sunday at 1224 Huron Road in downtown.

Cleveland firefighters say they used the Jaws of Life to get the female driver out of the car.

She was transported to MetroHealth Hospital and listed in critical condition.

Her name is not being released.

Paul Mills, the building manager says, luckily, the man who cleans on Sunday mornings was late for work.

"My cleaning guy that's here every morning - he was the first person I called - and he was five minutes late, and it's a good thing because he is usually down here cleaning at six o'clock every morning.  Had he been on time, he'd have been in the path," said Mills.

Cleveland police say the crash remains under investigation and nobody inside the building was injured.
