An SUV crashed into an Echo Park cottage near Lake Shore Avenue and Berkeley Street this afternoon, punching a hole into the building. The vehicle, which is pictured above being towed away from the scene, caused some damage to the base of the home, said David Torres, who was driving by at about 1:40 p.m. It’s not clear if anyone was injured in the accident or how much damaged occurred, but Torres said Gas Co. crews were on the scene. It looked like the vehicle was heading east on Berkeley and kept going through the intersection before hitting the house, Torres said.
