JOPLIN, Mo. — Joplin’s building inspector is called to a scene after two vehicles crash, sending one into a home.
It happened Friday morning just before 11 near 26th and South Picher Ave. Joplin police said two vehicles crashed into each other, then one then crashed into a home.
Officers said the fist driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and the second driver wasn’t injured.
The city’s building inspectors were called out to look at the home. They determined based on the structural and possible electrical damage to the house, it needed to be declared a dangerous building. That means repairs will have to be made before anyone can move back in.
City leaders said no one was home when the car hit it.
