SUV crashes into West Garfield Park apartment

An SUV plowed into an apartment on Chicago's West Side early Monday morning.

Police said the driver ran from the scene in the 4500-block of West Congress Parkway after the vehicle came to rest with its front end lodged in the bedroom window and wall of a garden apartment.

"We knew that the kids were downstairs and that they sleep in that front room. We just immediately tried to get the kids out safe," said Christina Robinson, a neighbor.

The children were sleeping inside that bedroom. No one inside the building was injured.
