    For residents at the complex, it's a case of déjà vu. That same building was hit by a speeding driver last November, leaving behind damage that workers were still in the process of fixing.

    Friday's crash damaged the support columns of the complex. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews deemed the building unsafe, meaning some residents must find a new place to stay.

    One resident was treated for minor cuts caused by flying debris from the crash. Residents say now they're worried about their safety.

    "It happens so often," one resident said of the crashes. "It don't make any sense."
