No one was injured Thursday morning when a car ran into an apartment building in Merriam.

The incident occurred about 8 a.m. Thursday near 72nd Terrace and East Frontage Road.

Police said the driver of the car was backing up when she struck another vehicle.

She then began to pull forward, and somehow accelerated fast enough to drive over a two-and-a-half-foot wall and run into the apartment building.

The apartment resident was home but neither she or the driver were injured, according to Merriam police.
