A southeast-facing exterior wall at Perham Health was hit by a vehicle on June 26.

According to a representative from Perham Health, the wall that was struck was that of an office space, not the emergency room or clinic.


No one was in the office at the time of the incident and no injuries were reported. The representative said the driver accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Work to repair the damage was underway later that afternoon.
