Fire officials say, around 1:45 a.m., the woman made a U-turn on Clifton, took out a utility pole, hit a small metal post in front of a pizza shop, ripping it out of the ground and, finally, shot across the street into the brick apartment building on the corner at Broad Street.
"Big crash. I look out and see a car in that house," he said.
He says he tried to help.
"Me and the (pizza place worker) were trying to get her out, but she couldn't move. She was moving around, but she couldn't get out," Augustin said.
Officials say the part of the building where the crash happened was unoccupied. A neighbor says someone lives on the second floor, but they weren’t home.
Officials also say there were two couples in the building, but they live in units toward the back, so they weren’t hurt. They had to leave the property, however, and stay with relatives.
