A Sioux Falls man is behind bars after crashing a car into an apartment building.
It happened Wednesday night in the 400 block of East 13th Street. Witnesses say the car was heading northbound on 4th Avenue at 60 to 80 miles per hour. The driver lost control around the curve where 4th Avenue turns into 13th Street. The car hit the west side of the apartment building at 400 East 13th before rolling onto its side.
Residents of the apartment building helped the driver out of the vehicle and rolled the vehicle back onto its wheels. Then the driver tried to get back into it and drive away. When the vehicle would not move he climbed out and tried to walk away.
Timothy Lee Bellonger, 43, was arrested on charges of DUI, Reckless Driving, No Drivers License, and Hit and Run.
