Driver crashes into Roxbury apartment building, sending glass flying into man’s bedroom

A driver crashed into an apartment building in Roxbury on Thursday, leaving a man hospitalized by flying glass.

A driver behind the wheel of a BMW turned a corner onto Washington Street and lost control, striking the building and shattering some windows.

A man in the downstairs bedroom was injured by flying glass and taken to a hospital to get checked out.

The force of the impact rattled a nearby building.

“I looked out my window and saw all of the police cars, so I didn’t really see anything but I heard it and felt it on the fourth floor of my building,” one person said.

The driver was allowed to leave the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
