KENTWOOD, Mich. — A man was taken to the hospital after driving through a building at Countryside Townhomes in Kentwood Friday morning.

According to a woman who lives in the apartment building, she heard a noise around 4:30 a.m., thinking it might have been a tornado. 

She told 13 ON YOUR SIDE that she was upstairs with her two children and her husband was downstairs on the couch when the crash happened. 

The driver of the car went through the window of the car and into the apartment. He did not move until the ambulance came to take him to the hospital. Police said he suffered life threatening injuries, and that residents of the apartment were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

13 ON YOUR SIDE crews at the scene saw tire tracks in the lawn leading up to the side of the building. 

Police are investigating the situation, but said in a release that speed appeared to be a factor in the crash. Alcohol and or drug involvement wasn't immediately known.
