Car crashes into Kennewick apartment

A car crashed into an apartment in Kennewick on Tuesday evening.

Kennewick police responded to the crash around 6:30 p.m. at 601 S Kent Street, where they found a man who was parking his vehicle pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal and collided with the building.

A building inspector arrived and determined the damaged apartment was too dangerous for the family to stay in.

Officers were able to utilize the Community Care Fund to place the family in a hotel for two nights, as their new apartment will not be ready until Friday.
