Driver backs into apartment, leaves a hole and the scene

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, July 30, 2002

A vehicle apparently mistook an apartment at Hoffler Complex on East Washington Street for a drive-thru late Monday night. Actually, the vehicle, still unknown to police, backed into the apartment in Building C at Hoffler Apartments in the Hollywood section of Suffolk.

No one witnessed the incident and the driver of the vehicle simply pulled out of the mess he’d made and drove away.

Suffolk Police are investigating the accident, which took place at 11:45 p.m., and are asking for the public’s help in apprehending the person who drove into the structure.
