YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A car crashed through an apartment building in Youngstown Saturday morning.
It happened at the Brandywine Apartments in the 3200 block of Canfield Road around 11 a.m.
No one was hurt except for the driver, who is being checked out at the hospital.
According to police, the driver came down through a parking lot, jumped the curb and crashed right into a floor-level apartment.
Police at the scene said the driver said his brakes failed, though the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Ken Schuler lives in the apartment that was hit and said at first, he thought someone was moving furniture upstairs.
“When I seen the wall in the bathroom knocked through, it’s just a big hole above the toilet, there’s a big hole in the wall and that’s how I knew there was something in the bedroom. When I tried to open the door, I forced it open and that’s when I looked and seen the car,” he said.
Schuler said he normally uses the room for storage and luckily, no one was in it when the crash happened.
