Out of Control Van Smashes Through Susanville Police Department Wall

Despite some scary moments, no injuries were reported in the building Tuesday afternoon when the driver of a minivan lost control of the vehicle on Susanville’s Main Street, crashing through a wall, and burying itself in the side of the Susanville Police Department’s offices at 1801 Main.

According to details released by the SPD, the vehicle had been traveling east on Main Street shortly before 1:00p.m., when the driver possibly experienced a medical emergency causing them to lose control of their vehicle, which then crossed over the west bound lanes of traffic, over the curb and into the building.

No one inside the building was injured and the driver of the vehicle was taken to Banner Lassen Medical Center for observation and treatment.

The accident is being actively investigated and crews are checking the structural integrity of the Police Department’s building at 1801 Main.

Police Chief Ryan Cochran thanked the Susanville Fire Department, Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol and Susanville Towing for their assistance. He gave special mention to the City of Susanville’s Public Works Department, who responded and assisted in clean up, as well as securing the building until future repairs can be made.

The front office will still be open to the public during our normal business hours.
