Jones County Building Crashed Into

Homeowners in Jones County woke up to a car that drove through a building on their property Monday morning, but this isn’t the first time something like this has happened just outside their door. KCRG reports it happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday at the T-intersection of Iowa Highways 64 and 136. The Jones County Sheriff said a woman driving a car experienced what authorities believe may have been a medical condition while heading south on Highway 136. The driver then plowed through the intersection, crashing through a converted garage. Property owner Deb Brinkman said this is the fifth time a car has crashed into the structure. The Brinkmans bought the building that sits just next door to their house 46 years ago, right after someone else had crashed into it. It was once a drive-in restaurant that they converted and have since used as a man cave. The driver of the car was treated for a seizure and other injuries related to the incident but is expected to be okay. The Iowa Department of Transportation is reviewing Monday’s crash and previous incidents to determine what changes can be made.
