IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A car crash in a parking ramp at the University of Iowa has forced a portion of the ramp to be closed.

University of Iowa spokesperson Tom Moore said a driver was trying to park on the second level of Ramp 1 at the University Iowa Hospitals and Clinics on Tuesday afternoon.

The driver accidentally accelerated, driving through a concrete barrier and forcing the car to land on top of another car below.

Moore said no one was inside the second car. The driver was not injured.

Engineers surveyed the damage to the parking ramp and determined it is still structurally sound and safe for use.

However, they did fence off a few parking spots on each level of the ramp as a precaution.
