SUV plows through fence, hits Sarasota apartment

SARASOTA - SARASOTA, Fla. - Two people suffered minor injuries after a SUV crashed into an apartment Sunday morning.

Edward Dion, 70, of Sarasota, was attempting to turn into the driveway access of 5900 Wilkinson Rd. at about 7:30 a.m. when he accelerated instead of applying the brakes, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Dion's SUV ran off the roadway and hit a tree and a fence before crashing into several pillars and an air conditioning unit at 5910 Wilkinson Rd., troopers said.

Arlene Watson, 50, was sleeping inside the apartment when debris from the crash hit her. She, along with Dion, suffered minor injuries, troopers said.

The crash remains under investigation.
