The accident happened at about 6:30 a.m. on the 700 block of North Bunker Hill Avenue slightly north of West Cesar Chavez Avenue. A four door dark colored Toyota sedan crashed through the window of the modest Chinatown apartment.

The driver lost control of the sedan; it traveled across the five-foot-wide concrete sidewalk and was launched a few feet into the air after crashing against a one foot tall brick planer. Although the front windows of the apartment were protected with metal bars, the airborne vehicle traveled at least three more feet horizontally then crashed through the front window breaking through the protective metal bars and pieces of wall landing inside the apartment.

Awakened with a loud bang and the constant roaring of the engine, the preteen girl could not believe what had happened. Her room was now completely filled in dust and car parts and parts of the wall were scattered in her room and on her bed. Picture hangers and decorations fell on the floor. It wasn’t until she began to feel pain that she realized that what had happened was not a dream.
Paramedics responded to the accident and transported the girl to a local hospital, where she will be treated for minor injuries.

The girl’s bed that was next to the wall that was hit will have to be replaced. It was drenched in radiator coolant fluid. So will the wall and the window.

Authorities have identified the person who was driving the vehicle but have not released his name. He had lost control of the sedan for no apparent reason and crashed at an allegedly high speed. There were no signs of the man being intoxicated at the time of the crash. He did not suffer injuries.

Cleanup crews have made plans to remove the vehicle from the apartment. They are thinking of dislodging the vehicle by towing it. A high strength cable connected to the rear of a pulling apparatus on the tow truck will be attached to the vehicle which landed hood first into the wall. Then by turning on the apparatus and towing with the truck can the vehicle be dislodged.
