The incident occurred at around 8:50 a.m. when an out-of-control black Mercedes-Benz slammed through the glass-door entrance of the 40-storey luxury residential building on Huguenot Street and into the marble lobby.
A New Rochelle Police Department spokesman said the crash did not appear suspicious, but remains under investigation. The driver was injured and was being questioned by police, WBDJ reported.
A video clip posted to Twitter by CBS New York reporter Tony Aiello showed the vehicle sitting inside the main lobby and the entrance of the tower shattered and damaged.
