WHEELING -

A car lost control and plowed through the wall of a first-floor apartment, trapping the resident inside under the vehicle in Wheeling on Sunday.

The crash occurred at the Brooke Park Place Apartments along National Road on Sunday evening, and Paul Harto, Assistant Chief with the Wheeling Fire Department, said the car struck two parked vehicles before slamming into the apartment building.

"The occupant of the apartment was temporarily trapped under the car," he said. "We had to extricate him. He's been transported to the hospital for his injuries. The driver has been checked over and also transported to the hospital."

Harto said they're still trying to determine whether a mechanical or medical problem caused the accident.
