Elderly woman drives SUV into Columbia business

A 73-year-old Rocheport woman drove her SUV into a Columbia business late Friday morning.

The accident took place at the Frameworks store on Old Highway 63 North. The woman's vehicle went through the building to the windshield before coming to a stop. Fortunately, there was no one in that area of the store at the time and no one was injured, including the driver.

The Technical Rescue Unit stabilized the building. Crews also called for a building inspector to assist them in evaluating the structural integrity of the building before removing the vehicle.

The damage is estimated to be about $10,000.
