Police say one person was killed and 11 others injured this morning when a car crashed through the windows of a Gilbert business where an instructor was teaching a massage therapy class.

Gilbert Police Lt. John Lyle said the crash occurred at about 10 a.m. at Spa Pima, part of the Pima Medical Institute.

Company president Mark Luebke said there were eight students and one instructor inside the building when the sedan crashed into the classroom. One student was killed.

Lyle said the 87-year-old female driver and a passenger were treated at the scene for minor injuries. Nine others also were treated, including four who were taken to the hospital with more serious injuries. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

Authorities were awaiting a structural engineer before removing the car and the body.
