OCALA (AP) — Officials say a man crashed an SUV into an Ocala apartment building and then fled the scene.

Ocala Fire Rescue posted on Facebook that crews responded to Laurel Park Apartments on Sunday and found a red Ford Explorer resting partial inside a unit. It says the SUV had hit a curb, gazed a tree, drove through a fence and then crashed into the building.

Authorities say the residents didn't appear to be injured and witnesses reported that the driver left the scene before authorities arrived.

A building inspector determined that the apartment was uninhabitable.

Police still were searching for the SUV's driver as of Monday night.
