OKLAHOMA CITY – A car crashed into an apartment in southwest Oklahoma City near I-240 and May Avenue Monday afternoon.

One neighbor said it sounded like a sonic boom. Neighbor Janet Smallwood said the driver told police she tried to put on the brakes but her car kept going.

Smallwood is thankful there was a firewall between the two apartments.

"I do believe that was a Godsend because it saved everybody's life because otherwise it would have come in on us too cause we were in the kitchen," said neighbor Janet Smallwood.

Smallwood's neighbor said she'd just left the living room when the car came crashing through the wall.

It is unclear if the driver was injured during the incident.
