At least one person hurt after car crashes into Mercy Hospital
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -
A car crashes into Mercy Hospital, not far from the entrance.
Police were called to the hospital around 12:50 Tuesday afternoon after a car hit the side of the building.
Tire marks tell us the driver lost control at the intersection of E Market and N. Johnson street in Iowa City and knocked over a tree.
Hospital employees say they heard the crash from inside the building.
"We heard a loud impact and we turned around, and we could see people running toward the building," employee Rick Carter said. "I look over, and I see there's a car wedged between a retaining wall and one of the support pillars for the sky walk."
Police say at least one person was sent to the hospital after the crash.
