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.
