Car Crashes into Nursing Home

I know the nursing home in this article, at one point I ran a facility in that area...

LOOGOOTEE, Ind. - A car crashed into a southwest Indiana nursing home, injuring four residents.

Police say 83-year-old Albert Gilbert was sitting on a porch swing at the Loogootee Nursing Home when he was struck by the car and pushed through a brick wall and picture window. He was airlifted to an Evansville hospital for treatment of a fractured hip and internal injuries. Three other nursing home residents who were sitting in the dining room were treated for minor injuries. The Daviess County Sheriff's Department says a 71-year-old Washington, Indiana, resident was at the wheel of the car that ran into the nursing home in Loogootee, about 40 miles south of Bloomington. The man told police his foot slipped off the brake and onto the gas pedal.
