College officials responded to an accident involving a vehicle crashing into the Health and Fitness Building, located off Lentz Drive on campus, on Saturday, September 28. The accident left considerable damage to the building, which is used for fitness and health classes. The building will remain closed to students and the public until further notice after repairs are made. 

The accident occurred in the morning when the car rammed into a front-façade window, smashed into equipment, and drove directly into the back rooms. No employees or students were inside at the time, and the car stopped when it struck the rear wall. Emergency personnel examined the building and determined that it remained structurally sound, but the collision left a considerable hole at the exterior. 

College administrators arrived on site immediately after the accident to access the damage and speak with emergency personnel. The damaged section currently has a patchwork job and is covered to protect it from the elements. Repairs will be done as soon as possible, and all classes scheduled at the Health and Fitness Building will be relocated elsewhere on campus.
