SUV strikes Phoenix apartment complex

PHOENIX — An accident involving two vehicles sent an SUV careening into a Phoenix apartment complex on Friday.

One driver was attempting to turn north on Seventh Street and thought an oncoming driver was going to turn.

“The gold compact car made a right hand turn in front of the northbound vehicle causing a t-bone-type accident, which the caused the silver SUV to go up over the curb, through the trees and into the apartment,” said Phoenix Police Lt. Tracy Miller.

The SUV struck the lower level of an apartment building. Ruby Cassard was in her apartment when it was hit by the SUV.

“All of a sudden we heard this big loud crash,” she said. “We knew it was a car or something. Everything went flying all over, glass and everything cracked. I didn’t know exactly how to react.”

Cassard was angered by the crash.

“If I talked to (the drivers), I’d probably choke them to death,” she said. “There’s just so many ignorant people driving around.”

Cassard was trapped in her apartment for a short time before being pulled out by firefighters.

No one was injured in the crash but the drivers were hospitalized as a precaution. Police said impairment was not a factor.

One driver was cited for driving without a license.
