Injuries, gas leak reported following crash at Port St. Lucie apartment building

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL — One person was injured Saturday morning when they crashed their car into an apartment building in Port St. Lucie, according to WPTV.

The collision took place in the 2600 block of Hatches Harbor Road, in an area east of Florida’s Turnpike. It was first reported at around 10:30 a.m.

Port St. Lucie Police Department officials indicated that the incident created a gas leak in the building that prompted an evacuation, but it’s unclear at this time what led up to the crash.

A photo captured at the scene shows a light-colored sedan was involved. The driver, described by one witness as a “young guy,” suffered injuries considered non-life-threatening.

By 12:30 p.m., the PSLPD confirmed that the scene had been cleared and that the gas leak had been contained.
