A car caused significant damaged to a building in Sudbury, Massachusetts, Thursday morning, police said, but no one was seriously hurt.

Images shared by the Sudbury Police Department showed a Tesla covered in debris from a window and wall that the car appeared to have crashed through. Police said the crash left the building unsafe.

The crash took place at an orthodontics office on Concord Road near Route 20 about 9:15 a.m., police said.

Injuries related to the crash were minor, police said. The two people in the car were unharmed when police arrived, but were needed help getting out because of debris that had fallen on the car.

Someone inside the building at the time of the crash was taken to a local hospital with injuries that police characterized as non-life-threatening; witnesses said the person wasn't badly hurt.

Police have not released the name of the driver or said whether charges will be brought. But they emphasized they believe the driver simply made a mistake and the crash had nothing to do with Tesla’s self-driving system.

The building and wiring inspectors were called to the scene, and the building was ultimately left in the custody of the Building Department and the owner.
