LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Residents in Buechel who have been living without power since a car plowed into their apartment building are now being told they need to move out.

Sandra Garrett and her neighbors in her apartment complex along Beechbrook Road have been without power since September 24, when the car driven by a man who police said was running from them hit the building it knocked out the electrical boxes.

Wednesday, the city inspectors deemed the building unsafe and told residents need to leave.

"Here we are, nowhere to go, no family to fall in on," explained Garrett.

Last week the landlord told WAVE 3 the car owner's insurance company will pay for the damage.

Residents have until Friday at midnight to leave. The landlord was unable to be reached for comment.
