An SUV crashed into an occupied apartment building in Bethesda Monday evening, leaving the driver injured and three families displaced, according to Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service.

 The SUV ran through the wall of a two-story building at 7001 Clarendon Road, a block behind Bethesda Row, at about 7 p.m., breaking a hole through an apartment and causing the building to be evacuated, MCFRS spokesman Pete Piringer wrote on Twitter.

Medics took the driver of the SUV to a local hospital with priority 2 trauma injuries, Piringer wrote, using a scale of three, with priority 1 being the most serious. Residents were home at the time, but were not injured.

The crashed caused significant structural damage and left several apartments unsafe to occupy, according to Piringer. Three families—a total of seven people—were displaced. The Red Cross was called to assist the families.
