Emergency crews don’t know why the man in the car crashed into the apartment, but he was taken into custody.

WICHITA, Kansas, November 11, 2008 -- A car slammed into the Westway Apartment complex Monday night on W. Pawnee.

Emergency crews don't know why the man in the car crashed into the apartment, but he was taken into custody. A woman inside the apartment suffered minor injuries.

Residents heard the crash and were shocked to find out what had happened.

'We heart hurry, like a huge boom and the whole place shook a bit,' said resident Jared Berry.

'It felt like something shaking the building, we thought it was just thunder at first, until we saw the firefighters come,' said resident Julie Adamson.

Fire crews were already on scene because of a small grease fire that had been reported earlier in a nearby apartment.

The fire was quickly taken care of, but there was initial confusion about whether the crash call was somehow related to the earlier fire call.
