CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this article we said an employee at the complex said a passenger was taken to the hospital. We have now confirmed that it was the driver that was taken to the hospital.

A driver crashed into the side of the La Joya Bay Resort apartment complex on Ennis Joslin Road near McArdle early Tuesday morning.

According to CCPD officer Travis Pace, the crash happened at about 2:50 a.m. when the vehicle went off the road, through a fence and into an empty apartment at the complex.

A man was detained at the scene. He was taken to the hospital and faces DWI charges.

No one inside the apartment was injured in the accident.

CCPD is continuing its investigation into the accident.
