I'd like to know whether it is appropriate to use "in to" or "into"...


I have a sentence I'm writing where I describe making a turn, as I run, into an empty alleyway. Here is how I would like to say it: "I turn into a lonely lane..." The problem I find is that it may mean that I am changing my direction to run into a lane, or it may suggest that I am becoming a lane -- however unlikely that may be, realistically. Is there a better way to write that sentence without disrupting the flow of my writing itself? (I understand that I can say, "I make a turn into a lonely lane..." but am afraid that that might cause some incontinuity.) For example, could I say, "I turn in to a lonely lane..."? Thanks!
