Driver flees after van crashes into Lexington apartment building

Police are looking for a man who ran off after a van he was in crashed into a Lexington apartment building.

No one was injured when the van hit an apartment building at 1977 Cambridge Drive, near Versailles Road and Alexandria Drive.

Witnesses told officers the man had been working on his van in a parking lot at the top of a hill across the street, Lt. Chris Van Brackel said.

The van somehow rolled down the hill, across the street and crashed into the apartment, causing minor damage to the brick and breaking some items inside, he said.

The man got out of the van, surveyed the damage and then ran away, witnesses said.

Police towed the van and are holding it until the owner can be found, Van Brackel said.
