A driver of an SUV is seriously hurt when the SUV they were driving smashed into a building on Tuesday night. The crash happened just before 9 PM on the 1000 block of Jadwin. The building is next to Jimmy John's. The Richland Fire Chief tells Action News the SUV plunged into the building and then sparked a fire that fire crews put out in minutes. After extinguishing the fire, fire fighters discovered a man inside the vehicle and pulled him to safety. Medics rushed the man to Kadlec to be treated for his injuries. We do not know the age, or name, of the driver. The building is an office space with three separate suites. We're told the office space with the most significant damage is an attorney's office.
