BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A car plowed into a laundry business Thursday morning on South Chester Avenue.

Kern County firefighters said the driver swerved around 4:30 a.m. to avoid something in the road, possibly a dog, and crashed into the building near Southgate Drive.

The front entrance of the building was shattered, but the driver wasn’t seriously hurt.
