Vehicle Crashes into Building in Downtown Burlington
A southbound SUV swerved off North Main Street in downtown Burlington around noon today and crashed through the front wall of Dr. Michael Hendricks’ former office, just north of Court Street.
The driver, a woman, was taken by BFD ambulance to Great River Medical Center, her name and condition not yet known. Because there were no skid marks, it’s believed she may have passed out or suffered from an existing medical condition that forced her to lose control of her faculties.
Damage to the building, which has been empty for about 3 1/2 months, is substantial and authorities hesitated to remove the vehicle right away due to the potential danger from more falling debris.
