For the second time in a week, a vehicle has hit the Business and Technology Center.

Monday morning, a 73-year-old woman drove her vehicle from Newton Drive over the curb and struck the back of the building at 1802 N. Division Street. The woman was not injured.

Last week, a man drove his car into the front doors of the Business and Technology Center off of Illinois 47.

Police said then the driver was believed to have been suffering from a medical condition.

Kellen Day, 29, Morris, was later cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, said Morris Police Chief Brent Dite.

He was treated, but was able to walk to the ambulance at the scene.

No one else was injured in the accident.

Day struck a parked car at McDonald’s and some shrubs before the vehicle went back onto Illinois 47, going north, and veered off the road again, running into the front doors of the technology center.
