UPDATE: Medical issue may have caused downtown Boise crash
Boise Police are investigating what caused a car to crash into the Key Bank building at the intersection of S. Capitol Blvd. and W. Idaho Street shortly after 3:30 this afternoon, according to Boise Police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower.
Officers and firefighters who responded to the scene say a 70-year-old woman driving a gold Honda -- that appears to have caused the crash -- may have had a medical issue.
Witnesses say she ran several red lights in the downtown area before running the red light heading westbound on Idaho Street. The Honda collided with a Toyota Camry driven by a woman in her 20's who had her grandmother as a passenger. They were heading north. After hitting the Camry, the Honda continued on, crashing into the bank building, Hightower said.
The driver of the Honda and the driver's grandmother, who was a passenger in the Camry, were both hospitalized. Injuries to the Camry passenger did not appear life-threatening.
The area of the bank building that the Honda crashed into was vacant. No one inside the building was hurt.
No citations have been issued at this time, Hightower said. The crash remains under investigation.
