NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A building in Midwood, Brooklyn has been reduced to rubble by an out-of-control driver that crashed a car into it Monday night.

The impact was so strong, the car ended up all the way inside a vacant business.

Police say the 20-year-old driver got out of the car and tried to run away but officers caught up to him and are now holding him on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The building housed a closed business on the first floor and an apartment on the second floor.

The residents of the apartment on the building’s second floor were not home at the time of the collapse.
