Car Crashes into Apartment Complex

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-It was a scary night for the residents of Central Park Apartments on Olympia Ave. in Kennewick.  A car rammed right through the front of the apartment building, no major injuries were reported.

It was a black Mercedes sedan that ran into the apartment complex.

Police responded to the collision just before 2 a.m. at the intersection of Olympia Ave. and 5th St. 

"Officers on scene are investigating him being possibly intoxicated so once the driver was transported to the hospital for his injuries there's also a DUI investigation that's ongoing," said Aaron Hammel, Kennewick Police Department.

Sew They said he usually sleeps in the front of the house in the living room but last night something told him he should sleep in his bedroom instead, in the back of the house which ultimately kept him safe.

Some of the residents whose apartments were damaged have been moved to other units within the complex.

In total three of the apartments are now uninhabitable.

A neighbor said he heard the crash from his garage right across the street.

"I heard a lot of acceleration and a thump, then a boom. I could literally hear the floor in the garage shake," said R.C. McKinney.
