Firefighters reported no one else was involved in the crash, which took place near a subway station in San Donato Milanese, a small town near Milan.

Several cars in a nearby parking lot were set on fire by the crash, but were unoccupied at the time.

A thick column of dark smoke was visible from the crash site from several kilometres away.

The now-charred building was reportedly under renovation.
