New details have surfaced after one person died and several others were injured after a car crashed into a Gilbert business last week.

Gilbert police said a vehicle slammed into the Pima Medical Institute near Baseline and Power roads around 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Authorities said 87-year-old Sally Woloshin struck a parked car before slamming into the building.

Mark Luebke, president of the Pima Medical Institute, said the vehicle drove into a classroom, where a massage therapy class was being held.

Luebke said there were eight students and one instructor inside the building when the Infinity sedan crashed through the large windows beneath a light blue awning and into the classroom.

Twenty two-year-old Lacey Gruntorad was killed after being pinned underneath the car.

Police just released the 911 calls that came in after the accident happened.

As it turns out, Lacey wasn't the only student pinned underneath the car.

911: Where's your emergency?

Caller: We have two people missing, there are two stuck behind the car right now.

911: Sir, can you see the people under the vehicle?

Caller: There's one person that's stuck in really bad condition.

911: Can you tell, is she breathing?

Caller: One of them is breathing. Hailey, Hailey can you hear me? Breathe Hailey, breathe, Hailey.

Caller: We have one that's conscious, the other is unconscious and we have no pulse.

Friends say Lacey was pretty set on her career. She had this chart of six months, a year, two years, five-10 years down the road and she categorizing everything she wanted to do in her life. Everything.

Officials say the other student who was pinned under the car suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police say Woloshin was not impaired. Officials told ABC15 they have not decided whether or not she will be charged.

A formal police report is expected soon.
