CLOSE CALL ON CLINTON LANE
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.
