NATIONAL CITY, Calif. -- A car smashed into a South Bay bar early Friday, ending up fully inside the building.

The car crashed into the bar, National City Sports Lounge on Sweetwater Road, around 6 a.m.

The driver accidentally hit the gas and reversed into the building, National City Police Department said. They did not report any serious injuries and said alcohol was not believed to be a factor.

Engineers were called to check on the structure. Fire officials later said the building had been "red-tagged" meaning it wasn't safe for anyone to go inside.
