Police seek driver of SUV that crashed into Florida home

August 27, 2019

OCALA, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a man crashed an SUV into a Florida apartment building and then fled the scene.

Ocala Fire Rescue posted on Facebook that first responders found the front end of a red Ford Explorer resting inside the living area of a ground floor unit at the Laurel Park Apartments on Sunday. It says the SUV hit a curb, grazed a tree, drove through a fence and then crashed into the building.

Authorities say no residents appear to have been injured, and witnesses reported that the driver left the scene before authorities arrived.

A building inspector determined that the apartment was uninhabitable. Police still were searching for the SUV’s driver as of Monday night.
