Vehicle mishaps involving collisions with buildings took place on consecutive days last week in Cedaredge.

Authorities said there were no injuries in either incident and noted that it was odd to have the two occurrences take place one day after the other.

On Wednesday, April 26, a vehicle being driven out of a parking space at the Community (Civic) Center lurched out of control, jumped a curb, grazed the former Duckwalls building and another vehicle before colliding with a foundation stemwall of the Community Options building on the other (east) side of NW 2nd.

Police said the driver was trying to operate the automatic transmission vehicle using the left leg because of an injured right leg. The driver became confused with the unnatural driving position and piloted the vehicle out of control.

A second mishap that occurred the day before involved a driver with a medical condition who, according to police, apprarently blacked out at the wheel while traveling south on Grand Mesa Drive (Highway 65).

The vehicle left the roadway and crashed into the Stay Wise Inn damaging the building slightly.
