The call came in that a car had gone into an apartment off W. McNeeley at Park Dr.  Units responding found the car went in one side of the building and came out the other.  The resident of the apartment, a 77  year old female, had just come from the refrigerator and had sat back down when the car came through the living room, missing the resident by about a foot and taking the refrigerator through the back wall into the back yard.  The driver of the car was a 14 year old girl whose mother was teaching her how to drive in the parking lot of the apartment complex.
