No injuries after SUV crashes into Joplin clinic


No one was hurt in a Joplin crash on Thursday but it must have drawn some second glances.

A SUV drove through the front wall of the Mercy Convenient Care at 13th and Range Line a little after 11 a.m.

A woman apparently clipped a curb, and hit the building, creating a giant hole into the lobby.

Nobody was in the lobby at the time and everyone was okay.

A worker inside the clinic says the crash was a bit of a shock.

"No wall, a car sitting there, actually most of the staff was already out to her making sure everything was ok, and so at that point I went back in to make some phone calls," says Robyn Gillum, a practice manager at the office.

The clinic has been shut down temporarily while the crash site gets cleaned up.

But Mercy hopes to reopen the clinic Friday.
