One person was injured Tuesday when an SUV crashed into a medical building in Greenfield.

According to the Greenfield Police Department, Rachel Chamblin, 69, of Hillsboro, was driving a blue 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer at 10:45 a.m. when the vehicle struck a wall of the Greenfield Medical Services building at 1092 Jefferson St.

The damage extended into the interior of the building, but the vehicle never actually entered the building’s interior, the police department reported. However, the police department said a female inside the building received minor injuries and was transported by the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District to Adena Greenfield Medical Center, where she was treated and released.

Chamblin said she meant to hit the vehicle’s brakes, but instead hit the gas pedal, causing the vehicle to strike the building, the police department said.

Chamblin was cited for operating a vehicle without reasonable control.

She was not injured, according to the police department.
