OCALA, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a man crashed an SUV into a Florida apartment building and then fled the scene.

Ocala Fire Rescue posted on Facebook that crews responded to Laurel Park Apartments on Sunday and found a red Ford Explorer resting partial inside a unit. It says the SUV had hit a curb, gazed a tree, drove through a fence and then crashed into the building.

Authorities say the residents didn't appear to be injured and witnesses reported that the driver left the scene before authorities arrived.

A building inspector determined that the apartment was uninhabitable.

Police still were searching for the SUV's driver as of Monday night.
