Van crashes into building on Evansville's southeast side

A woman is pinned to the wall when a van crashes through the sliding glass doors of her apartment on Evansville's southeast side.

Police say the driver was trying to pull into a parking space at Vann Park Apartments at Pollack and Vann when her foot got tangled in a floor mat and she hit the accelerator.

Crews had to make sure the walls were stable before they could move the van and get the woman out.

She was taken to the hospital as well as a man who was in the apartment.

No word on the extent of their injuries.

No one in the van was hurt in the crash, but one of the passengers did trip over a speed bump and was taken to the hospital.

The Building Commission is at the scene assessing the structural integrity of the apartment building.
