Police say they plan to ticket a motorist who crashed into a southern Iowa stadium building.
The Ottumwa Courier reports that the driver went through a chain-link fence at Schafer Stadium in Ottumwa on Saturday and struck the facility’s newest building.
Ottumwa Police Sergeant Noah Aljets says the car was traveling between 35 and 40 miles per hour just before the crash. Aljets says the building wasn’t seriously damaged.
Aljets says it isn’t clear why the driver kept going straight into the fence instead of turning into a nearby parking lot.
The driver, who wasn’t identified, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
