LOS ANGELES (FOX 11/CNS) - One person was injured when a vehicle crashed through a glass front door and into the lobby of a convalescent home in the Fairfax area of Los Angeles today, a fire department spokesman said.

The crash took place at about 2:25 p.m. at the Kennedy Care Center, at 619 N. Fairfax Ave., just south of Melrose Avenue, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Shawn Lenske.

No residents of the home were in the lobby or injured during the crash, Lenske said.
