A man crashed a car into a Stanton Heights auto care shop this afternoon, Pittsburgh police said.

Officers from the city’s Zone 5 station in Highland Park were called to Hi-Tech Auto Care in the 6300 block of Butler Street about 1:30 p.m., Sgt. Ray Rippole said.

Police suspect the driver might have been under the influence of drugs and are taking him for blood tests, the sergeant said.

A 1-year-old child was also in the car and is being taken to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC for an evaluation, he said.

No one in the shop was injured.
