FORT MADISON – No injuries were sustained when a red Jeep plowed through a garage on the newly constructed S Curve in the 3500 block of Avenue L Friday afternoon.

According to Fort Madison Fire Chief Joey Herren, a woman, who’s name was not available at press time, admitted to distracted driving and failed to negotiate the turn and crashed into a garage on the south side of Avenue L, taking out the northwest corner of the garage and coming to rest half in and half out of the garage.

Rescue personnel were on hand to stabilize the building before removing the vehicle.

Herren said the garage suffered roughly $10,000 damage, and the Jeep is likely totaled.
