Van Crashes into Apartment
"It had very little resistance with just a sliding glass door and as you can see it just kinda lined itself up perfectly with that opening, took the mirrors of the vehicle off, of course, as it went in, but, yeah, I think all in all pretty fortunate afternoon that the occupant of this apartment was not seriously injured," said Steve Sapp, Battalion Chief, Columbia Fire Department.
A tow truck managed to pull the van out of the building about an hour after the incident. Building inspectors, at this point, say the building is structurally alright. There's no word on where the affected apartment tenant will live.
