A vehicle crashed into a children's art studio in Belmont Friday morning, police said.

The crash was reported at about 8:30 a.m. at Yee Studio, a business located at 926 Ralston Ave., according to police.

A 56-year-old Fremont woman was attempting to park a 1999 Lexus sedan in the rear lot of the adjacent U.S. Bank and went over a curb, across a driveway and through the front window of the business, which was not open at the time, police said.

The Lexus did not come to a stop until it had hit the back wall of the building, according to police.

The woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries suffered in the crash. She is expected to survive, police said. No one else was injured in the collision.

The building sustained major damage in the crash and will be boarded up pending repairs.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
