MOUND, Minn. (WCCO) – A car being driven by a disabled war veteran ended up crashing into a Mound insurance office on Wednesday, authorities said.

The incident happened at about 7:30 a.m. at the State Farm Insurance building, located in the 5000 block of Three Points Boulevard.

Colin Charlson, who owns the insurance agency, said the driver was a disabled war veteran in a handicapped vehicle. The brakes got stuck as the car was heading northbound on Commerce Rd., according to Mound Police.

Authorities said the driver swerved away from several cars, went over a sidewalk and through a ditch before hitting the building. The driver hit the building about a foot away from a gas line.

Police said the driver suffered a leg injury and was treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Charlson said no workers were inside the building at the time of the crash.
