Police: No injuries when car hits apartment site

Posted: Updated:

SHILOH, Ill. (AP) - Police in the southwestern Illinois community of Shiloh says no one was injured when a car slammed into an apartment building, damaging two of the units.

The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/1oLpQSV) reports the car's 27-year-old driver was trying to park on Friday when the vehicle suddenly surged forward and hit the building.

Police say the car sustained slight damage. But the apartment building's wall buckled.

Police say the driver was not ticketed and that they do not believe alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.

The driver said he would have the car towed to a repair shop to determine why it reportedly sped out of control.
