Osceola residents say cars crash into wall of their complex regularly

Residents worried crashes could turn fatal

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – Residents in an Osceola County apartment complex say cars crash into the wall of their complex regularly.

According to officials with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, it has already happened multiple times this year.

Residents believe it could end in a fatality.

Some residents shared photos of the crashes with News 6 Investigator Louis Bolden. One photo shows the middle section of the wall knocked down after a crash. Edelmiro Torres has watched the accidents from his apartment.

"It's a growing problem that has me worried," he said.

He is worried because he has seen it happen over and over. "They come speeding through that curve and they lose control and end up crashing into our wall," he said.

According to Osceola County Sheriff's Office officials, there have been 17 accidents, hit-and-runs crashes and reckless driving incidents at the wall.

Another photo shows a car that crashed into a water pump instead of the wall.
