Six injured after car drives into Macy’s

Four people were injured and two others required medical attention after a car crashed into a Newpark Mall store in Newark late Wednesday afternoon, an Alameda County Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Fire crews responded to a report of a crash at the mall located south of Interstate Highway 880 at 4:48 p.m., fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles. The car went 50 feet into a Macy’s department store at the mall that left four people injured, she said.

One of the injured suffered serious injuries, she said. Two others people not directly involved in the crash suffered injuries Knowles called “secondary medical emergencies,” such as a panic attack or shock.

Knowles did not know how many people were transported to a hospital. Newark police evacuated everyone at the Macy’s store, Knowles said.
