An 18-year-old woman was cited by Fort Wayne police for misdemeanor driving while intoxicated Monday after she hit another vehicle and crashed into a nearby building, police reports said.

According to Fort Wayne Police reports, a car driven by Maria Vazquez of the 4900 block of Vermont Lane, collided with another car shortly after 3:20 a.m. at Lafayette and Wayne streets.

Neither driver reported injuries in the crash, according to police, but the 34-year-old man at the wheel of the other vehicle was pinned in the wreck and had to be cut loose from it by Fort Wayne firefighters.
