TU campus collision: vehicle damages Norman apartment

Two students and a fluffy dog were relocated last week after a driver accidently backed into a Norman Village apartment.
According to campus security reports, a student was backing out of a parking space when they accidentally clipped the car beside them.
“Instead of hitting the break, they hit the accelerator, which then forced the car up and around the parking lot and into the apartment,” said Campus Security Sgt. Claude Laughlin.
Students living in the apartment have been relocated while the wall is repaired.
Contractors with the Housing Department arrived at the scene within 30 minutes to assess the damage.
As of Friday, Oct. 7, repairs were nearing completion, and students can expect to return home soon.
