Car crashes through front of downtown yoga studio; female critically hurt

CLEVELAND -- A car crashed through the front of a downtown yoga studio early Sunday morning, prompting the business to close for the next few days.

It happened at around 6:30 a.m. at the Inner Bliss Yoga Studio on Huron Road.

Cleveland police said firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to remove a female from her car.  She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with critical injuries.

The building houses nine apartment units and Inner Bliss Yoga Studio on the first floor. The yoga studio is now temporarily closed until repairs can be made.

The building’s construction manager says the owner put a ton of work bringing the building, back to its former glory.

“We spent a year and a half doing a full historic restoration the building is on the registry so we did that to match the original stone work,” said Paul Mills, construction manager.

Cleveland Police have not said what caused the driver to drive into the building.

Inner Bliss on Sunday tweeted they were grateful that no one was in the studio at the time of the crash.  They'll be closed today and Monday.

The yoga company posted on Facebook a video of the car being removed from its studio.  Heavy damage is clearly shown in the video.
