Four apartment units were evacuated after a car came crashing into the complex in North Phoenix on Friday.

Phoenix fire spokesman Tony Mure said the incident began as a two-vehicle collision involving a tan, four-door sedan near Seventh Street and Mountain View Road.

Fire officials said one of the vehicles veered off the street, running into the North Mountain apartment complex.

The vehicle took out a support post to a balcony and severely damaged a staircase leading to two apartments.

The car came to a rest in the wall of a downstairs apartment.

Four people were evaluated by Phoenix fire paramedics. No one was taken to the hospital.

Four apartment units had structural damage, according to fire officials.

The Phoenix Fire Department and the manager of the apartment are finding a place for the displaced residents to stay.
