Two people were hurt on Wednesday night in Longview when an SUV crashed into the front of a building in the 700 block of Green Street.

Longview police responded to the scene just after 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Police say a Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by 30-year-old Latoya Shenae Addison, a Longview resident, turned on to Green Street. Addison lost control of the vehicle, which left the road and struck a parked car before hitting Inspiration House and two bystanders.

The injured pedestrians, Robert Lee Mayfield, 59, and Jo Anne Smith, 45, were taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries. They were released after being treated for minor injuries.  

"I just couldn't believe it was happening. I saw her car zoom around the corner and swerve to miss an oncoming car, then come straight at us. I was able to jump and run out of the way, but my two friends got hit and thrown to the pavement," says witness Dennis Johnson.

Addison had four passengers in her vehicle, including three young children. None of them were injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
