Location: Zone 5

Pittsburgh Police from Zone 5 were alerted overnight after three vehicles and an apartment building were damaged by an out of control vehicle on Apple Street.

The initial investigation shows that a GMC vehicle traveling down Apple Street sideswiped a car and continued down the street where it hit another vehicle, spun it around a telephone pole and into the porch of an apartment building, damaging the bricks and taking out a gas meter. 

The GMC then continued on, ramming into a truck where the driver got out and fled on foot.

Police are investigating. The Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire also responded to the scene.
