No one was injured when a car drove into the Lawrence Gymnastics and Athletics building, 5150 Clinton Parkway Monday night.

The Lawrence Gymnastics and Athletics building at 5150 Clinton Parkway was damaged after a car drove into the building Monday night.

LGA manager Carol McGarity said the car struck the south side of the building about 7:40 p.m. The car went through the wall of the building, and mirrors were damaged. However, the room was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

No injuries were reported, and classes continued as scheduled.

“Everything’s still up and running,” McGarity said. “We’re just thankful no one got hurt.”

Heck, if you follow the Topeka news, this is a regular occurance over there. They even had a special section on their on-line paper for it.

Maybe, this is just continuing the trend of them bringing things over here ????

Lucky no one was injuried. I doubt you would have thought it was so funny had there been some little girls working out at the time and cut by glass or worse. Not funny.

It was "funny" specifically because no one was in the room and no injuries were reported. You're correct that "if" someone had been hurt, this would not have been funny.

Driver found out that the cell phone texting reception fell off dramatically once they pierced the building..

what do you want to bet that the driver lost control while navigating one of this city's horrible, European, socialist traffic circles? when will the city planners learn how dangerous those are?
