APD and AFD personnel responded to the Motel 6, 225 Colorado Pl, this morning at about 9:25 AM on report of a vehicle into the building and occupants trapped in a motel room.
The driver of a parked car in the lot told Officers that he thought his car was not in gear. He then mistakenly backed out of his parking stall, across the driveway and into the building. The vehicle struck the doorway and wall to one of the motel rooms, causing some minor damage to the structure, trapping a 77 year old motel guest in the room until Officers and Firefighters arrived. Neither the driver nor motel guest was injured in the collision. Motel 6 remained open and relocated the guest to another room.
