Two receptionists were trapped Wednesday morning after a man backed his car into the law offices where they work.

It happened in the 700 block of west Washington Street in South Bend.

The man was driving north on Scott Street and was trying to turn right onto Washington. Instead, he hit a fire hydrant and put his car into reverse, sending it flying across the street.

The vehicle slammed into the law offices of Heppenheimer and Korpal going through a wall and into the receptionist area.

The two receptionists were working there at the time and were trapped until crews could get there to free them. Neither of the receptionists were injured.
