WESTCHESTER SQUARE - Tenants forced to evacuate their apartment three weeks ago after a car crashed into the building say they want to know when repairs will be made so they can move back home.

A car crashed into the building on July 12, killing the driver and injuring the passenger. A vacate order was issued for the first two stories of the building and major work has not been done.

The building's landlord says most of the debris has been cleaned up and there's temporary support reinforcing the building. He also said repairs are set to begin Friday. The accident is still under investigation by the police.
