Update: Car Crashes Into Greenville Apartment

Police have cited a woman with driving while impaired and reckless driving after her car crashed into a Greenville apartment building tearing a hole in the wall of a living room and damaging several cars.

Police say the driver, 50 year old Brenda Phillips of Greenville, was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the crash.

Residents at Carolina Cove Apartments on Arlington Boulevard say a vehicle tore a hole in the side of an apartment just before 10:00pm.

Police say that Phillips drove into the wall. But that the rampage didn't stop there. She put the car in drive and reverse several times, damaging a total of five cars in the parking lot.

We spoke to the woman who lived at the apartment minutes after the car went through her wall.

"Next thing I know I heard a boom so I thought it was my TV and unfortunately it was the car backing out of the wall where as you can see she crashed into the house," said Mbulu Rouse.

No other injuries were reported.

    to george: no, didnt mean that, clearly someone who is blitzed should not be served, just saying that some little 21 yr old girl should not have to be the one to make that decision, everyone knows when they need to stop, saying "well she got me this drunk" is stupid

    To Bill,,,,,,, When I was in college I was a bartender and in that state the servers were held liable. Are you saying that it is ok for a server to give someone a drink that has clearly had to much? Sorry man but I can't do that.

    to george: you should read the post by "well u", dont blame it on the waitress or bartender when someone gets a dui, they are not the ones getting drunk and driving and they are not your babysitter!! take some responsibility for your own stupid actions!

    Never known any woman that could drive well. I say no woman should ever get a license.

    The driver was found to be impaired. Was is alcohol or drugs? If it was alcohol, where was she drinking? I like going out for a drink with my friends and I know for a fact that a lot of bars in Greenville don't cut people off early enough. When are the bar owners and servers going to be held responsible for their customers getting trashed? I'm surprised that people that get DUI's don't sue the establishments that let them get so plastered.
