Suspected drunk driver crashes into Central Health clinic

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

It was business as usual for Central Health’s Southeast Health and Wellness Center on Monday morning even after a suspected drunk driver slammed his car into the building overnight. According to a press release, no patients or staff were at the clinic when the crash happened at 1:30 a.m. The driver plowed through an exterior wall and into a meeting room. The driver was arrested while a female passenger was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center with injuries that were not life threatening. Though the crash didn’t interrupt clinic operations, it did force Central Health to relocate a scheduled community forum the hospital district hosted Monday evening to discuss health-related challenges in eastern Travis County.
