A Davis resident drove her car into the front of the Senior Center, 646 A St., Friday, partially smashing through the cement exterior and into a bathroom on the other side of the wall, springing a leak that flooded part of the building.
Just after 10 a.m., Barbara Perkes arrived to the center to deliver Meals On Wheels in her white Nissan Altima when she apparently lost control of the vehicle, maneuvering between two pillars in the front of the center and barreling into the front of the building.
Perkes crumpled the front right side of her car. The base of the wall of the center from the outside was smashed into the bathroom by several feet.
“(The car) broke off a pipe and there was significant damage to the east side of the complex with a large amount of water into the building,” said Division Chief Shawn Kinney.
No one was hurt, including Perkes.
Maria Lucchesi, a senior center staff member who was on the scene the time of the incident, said that the majority of the programs scheduled for the multipurpose room on the east side of the building were cancelled for the day.
