A woman is in critical condition after a suspected hit-and-run driver slammed into a Santa Ana apartment complex Monday night, authorities said.

The crash was reported around 10:20 p.m. along the 1600 block of Memory Lane, according to the Santa Ana Police Department.

Responding officers found that a vehicle had struck the building and a female resident was trapped.

The Orange County Fire Authority was able to free the woman and she was taken to a nearby hospital in critical but stable condition. She had been sitting on a couch in an apartment when the van came barreling in, police said.

A second victim was assessed at the scene and also taken to a hospital. Her condition is unknown, but video from the scene showed her to be conscious and alert.

The driver ran away from the scene after the crash.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the van traveled south through the apartment complex parking lot and struck multiple fixed objects before crashing into and entering the first-floor apartment, police said in a news release.

Lamar Moorer, whose mother lives in the building, said he was standing in the parking lot when he saw the speeding vehicle crash into the building.

“It just kept going,” Moorer said.

He jumped into action and tried to get the trapped victim out of the rubble, but he was unsuccessful.

No further details about the crash have been released.

Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to call Santa Ana Police Department Cpl. N. Quinones at 714-245-8216 or the department’s traffic division at 714-245-8200.
