Car Hits Gainesville Apartment

7-21-06 - A car crashed into a Gainesville apartment complex Thursday night.

Police say it happened just before 10:30 PM, when Jesus Castillo, 21 was headed west on Broadway when he lost control and ran into the apartment building. His vehicle drove right into a single apartment unit being occupied by a couple.

The couple was not seriously hurt in the accident, but Castillo was air-lifted to a Ft. Worth hospital. Right now, police say his condition is not being released.

Four families were evacuated from the apartment complex and were put up in local hotels, until investigators can make sure the building is structurally safe.

Police say alcohol and excessive speed appear to be factors in the accident.
