Car crashes into Burlingame aparment building 

A family in Burlingame that had tosleep in a hotel Wednesday night after a car crashed into their apartment building has not yet been allowed to return home, a Central County Fire Department battalion chief said today.

A man, who witnesses say was driving about 50 mph, drove into the garage of the two-story building at about 8:45 p.m. and hit another car, which then rammed into another garage, Central County Fire Department Battalion Chief Drew Flinders said.

The driver was not injured.

Firefighters spent several hours shoring up the three-unit building located at 500 Oak Grove Ave., Flinders said.

None of the building's tenants were reported injured after the crash.

Damages to the building are estimated to be between $25,000 and $50,000, Flinders said.

The occupants of the building's two other apartments were allowed to stay home, but a building inspector wanted the two adults and two kids in the third apartment to go to a hotel because their home was deemed unsafe, Flinders said.

The family was still out of their apartment this morning but was expected to be allowed to return after the building's owner finished repairing the apartment, Flinders said.
