— A 26-year-old Raleigh man was charged with hit-and-run early Friday after police say he crashed a car into an apartment complex in northwest Raleigh.

Officers responded to the Duraleigh Woods Apartments, at 5600 Oak Meadow Lane off Duraleigh Road, at about midnight after the vehicle ran off the road and hit the wall and deck of a first-floor apartment.

According to investigators, Brandon Kent Loosman, of 4016 Grand Manor Court, left the scene following the incident. He was arrested at his home a short time after the crash. Loosman was released from the Wake County jail at about 5:30 a.m.

No injuries were reported, but Raleigh police said the car destroyed one wall and the deck of a unit. Red Cross was contacted following the incident to assist two displaced residents.
