(KSL News) You're watching television right before bed when all of a sudden a car comes crashing through your living room window.

Car Crashes Into Apartment

It happened last night to a Salt Lake man. Witnesses say a black Honda went blazing through a red light, and hit two retaining walls before slamming into an apartment complex.

It slid under the walkway of the apartments above, making it very hard for emergency crews to remove it from the apartment.

Residents living in the complex say this isn't the first time an accident has happened near their homes.

One witness says he doesn't believe the driver ever hit his brakes.

Tommy Newell/ Witness: "It was just a high rate of speed. I haven't been up there to look, (but) I don't even think he hit his brakes. I don't even think you'll find skid marks up there."
