WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A garage is damaged after a car ran into it.

It happened at a home off of Highway 63 in Waterloo.

Police say it happened last night not long before Midnight.

The driver drove off the highway, and into the grass. It hit a sign, a tree, and then finally it ended up inside the garage.

There was one passenger in the car who had minor injuries. 

She was taken to the hospital, but she is ok. 

The owner of the garage tells me he's glad no one else was hurt because there were children nearby. 

He also says he's not surprised this happened here. 

The owner says he usually has at least one tractor or vehicle inside the garage.

The driver of the vehicle was Rex Thompson.

He was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
