Resident escapes through window as car crashes into Toledo apartment

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Chuck Gleason was up early Friday morning, getting a drink of water and heading back into his bedroom when a car slammed into the living room of his first floor apartment at River Birch Village.

The crash happened around 4:40 a.m. at the complex on W. Sylvania Ave. and Woodley Rd.

The impact of the crash threw Gleason against a wall. According to him, there was so much smoke that he busted out a window in his bedroom to escape. No other tenants were injured.

Other tenants of River Birch Village said the people inside the vehicle got out and ran. They have not been located.

A building inspector with the City of Toledo is on the scene Friday morning to make a determination on the structural integrity of the complex.
