A car crashed into the Country Club Villas apartment complex around 2:28 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2018 on E. Florida Ave. near Parker Road in Arapahoe County.
A naked man drove his car into an Arapahoe County apartment complex early Wednesday morning, injuring himself and a woman inside the building.
The car crashed about 2:28 a.m. into two garden level units in the Country Club Villas apartments at 8828 E. Florida Avenue, just outside the southeast border of Denver, Colorado State Patrol spokesman Josh Lewis said.
The driver and a woman were transported to hospitals with minor injuries, South Metro Fire Rescue spokesman Eric Hurst said.
Residents at the scene told firefighters that the driver was naked when he got out of the car, Hurst said.
Firefighters evacuated the two units that were hit by the car as well as the four units on the two floors directly above them, Hurst said. Firefighters added pillars to the structure to make sure the ceilings of the garden level apartments remained stable.
“It’s just out of an abundance of caution,” Hurst said.
Investigators with the state patrol are still investigating what caused the crash, Lewis said. It was unclear whether drugs or alcohol were involved, he said.
Another car crashed into an Edgewater home early Sunday morning, barely missing a person sleeping inside. The previous weekend, someone crashed a car into a Denver restaurant and an elderly woman crashed her car into the sanctuary of a Littleton church.
Calls for cars crashing into buildings are not uncommon, Hurst said.
“It kind of ebbs and flows,” he said.
