Two people from North Jersey were arrested after crashing a car into a condominium complex Sunday in Kearney, according to police.
Residents were forced to evacuate the 12-unit Forest Junction condominiums. No injuries were reported.
Authorities say the building has significant damage and residents won’t be able to return to their homes until the building can be deemed safe. However, one resident told News 12 New Jersey that most of the residents were allowed back inside to only retrieve necessities.
