A 74-year-old Norwalk man backed his car into his apartment Wednesday night as he was adjusting his seat belt while getting into his assigned parking place.

The foot of Donald M. Zuk slipped and got stuck under the specially-equipped accelerator/brake pedal about 10:15 p.m., causing his 1992 Cadillac Brougham to lurch backward, police said. The car ran over the cement parking divider and through the center exterior wall of his apartment at 68 Norwood Ave., Apt. 1C.

Six Norwalk firefighters responded and extricated Zuk through the back seats. Capt. Bill Knadler estimated that two-thirds of the vehicle was in the apartment. Zuk was not injured.
