BURLINGTON, N.C. — A North Carolina woman is hurting and can’t return home after a neighbor’s vehicle rolled down a hill and crashed through the wall of her apartment.

Police in Burlington say 27-year-old Shauneen Roy didn’t suffer life threatening injuries Sunday when the car crashed into the apartment where she lives alone.

Police say neighbor Galina Hester was backing from a parking space when her vehicle malfunctioned and she went crashing down an embankment and into Roy’s apartment. Police say the 57-year-old driver wasn’t impaired and there were no charges.
