UPDATE: Two women are in the hospital, but expected to be okay after a car crashed into their apartment building. South Charleston Fire Chief Virgil White says one of the women was trapped for quite some time. “Both of the occupants of that house were transported to a local hospital to be evaluated. It took us approximately 40 minutes to get the one occupant extricated from underneath the vehicle,” says White.
Chief White also says this isn’t the first time a car has crashed into that home. He says many cars speed as they are exiting the Southmore Hills Apartments, “That’s about the fourth time that a car has gone through that house coming down from the apartment complex.”
