A Hummer crashed through the closed door of the J & B Transmission and Auto Repair Shop at 1905 Greenleaf St. in Evanston shortly after 9 a.m. this morning.

The car appeared to damage an interior wall of the building, and Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said city property standards inspectors were being sent to the scene to assess the extent of damage to the structure.

Parrott said it appeared no one was injured in the incident and the reason why the car went out of control was still being sorted out.
