Siloam Springs School

Three people were hospitalized over the weekend after a vehicle drove into a school in Arkansas.

Shane Patrick, the assistant superintendent of Siloam Springs School District, said that this is the second time in five weeks that a car has hit the gymnasium of Siloam Springs Intermediate School.

“That building has been there 20 years and it’s never happened, and now, of all a sudden, we’ve had two accidents within five weeks,” Patrick explains. “So it does make us concerned.”

The latest crash took place on Sunday evening, just after 7 p.m.

The assistant superintendent says the vehicle was driving on W. Cheri Woodlock Parkway and the road eventually has an “s curve that veers off to the left around the school’s property.”

“This car stayed straight instead of making the s curve and it jumped the curb and ran right up into our gymnasium, which is on the corner of our facility,” he said.

Siloam Springs Police said the car never tried to brake before hitting the building and that they believe the driver may have been impaired.

Three people — all of whom were inside the vehicle — were taken to Northwest Medical Center after the crash and were listed in critical condition, KFSM reported, citing police.

At this time, the cause of the crash is yet to be known and it is unclear if the driver will face charges. Officials are currently investigating the incident.
