Vehicle Smashes Through Walls At Fleming Island Apartment Complex Causing Evacuation

A driver told first responders she hit the gas instead of the brake, and ended up crashing through the wall of an apartment building Friday in Fleming Island.

The crash happened at the Lighthouse at Fleming Island apartment complex on Marsh Hawk Lane, west of U.S. 17.

Six apartments were evacuated while the Clay County Building Department inspected the structure. A structural engineer was en route just after 2 p.m.

Clay County firefighters said three apartments will remain evacuated and the tenants will need to be relocated.

The driver asked to be taken to the hospital and two other patients were checked out at the scene, but no serious injuries were reported.
