OKLAHOMA CITY – Emergency crews responded to a building near Bricktown after a car hit the structure, officials say.

Crews were at the scene at an apartment building near NE 3rd St. and Walnut just before 11 a.m. Sunday.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, the unit the vehicle hit was vacant.

There are people that live in the unit directly above it, but they weren’t inside their apartment when the crash happened.

“I was just around the corner here when I hear it hit,” Rob Helms an apartment resident said. “Several of the people I`ve talked to and I, it sounded like a dumpster had been dropped from a long distance when it hit.”

Officials say the driver was a male in his early 50s and believe he had some sort of medical event.  He was taken to the hospital and there were no reports of any other injuries.

“He vaguely remembers the incidents prior to striking the building.  He said he woke up in the building,” Fire Major Derrick Kiel with the Oklahoma City Fire Department said.  “We`re not sure what led up to that event.”
