CLOSE CALL ON CLIN­TON LANE

Porterville Recorder - - LOCAL -

Res­i­dents were star­tled but none were se­ri­ously in­jured Thurs­day af­ter­noon af­ter a car ran into an apart­ment com­plex on Clin­ton Lane by N. Milo Street in Porter­ville. Res­i­dent of the apart­ment com­plex and eye­wit­ness Adriana Jimenez said a red Toy­ota four-door sedan was try­ing to park in front of the com­plex when sud­denly the car rushed for­ward and struck one of its ex­te­rior walls, par­tially break­ing through to the room on the other side. “A young man was in the room when the ve­hi­cle struck the home. He is okay I think — he only got a scratch on his arm,” said Jimenez as she waited for the clear­ance to go back in­side her apart­ment, which was right next to where the col­li­sion oc­curred. The res­i­dent of the apart­ment said she was in her kitchen with her daugh­ter when it all happened. She also men­tioned her brother was in the room that the car ran into, but was not in­jured since he was on the op­po­site side of the room.
