Runaway Car Crashes Into Building In Dubuque

No injuries were reported after a runaway car crashed into an apartment building in Dubuque Thursday morning. According to a police report the car broke down at the intersection of Carter Road and Hillcrest Road at around 9 am. The owner, Marshonn Sullivan of Dubuque, got out and began pushing the vehicle. At about the same time a passerby came to help. As the two were pushing the car on Hillcrest, it got away from them and began traveling downhill, where it crossed into the opposite lane of traffic and smashed into the apartment building in the 3000 block of Hillcrest. There was a family in the apartment unit where the car struck, but they were in another room. The report doesn’t say if any charges will be filed.
