A Gas City man was injured after he crashed his truck into the former Marion Open MRI building late this morning.
Marion police and firefighters arrived to the 2700 block of South Western Avenue in Marion just after 11:30am. Police say 63-year-old William Sivis was traveling northbound when his truck veered left crossing on-coming traffic and smashed into the vacant building.
Sivis was not reported to be seriously hurt, but was taken to Marion General Hospital. Police say Sivis is a diabetic and a medical reaction likely caused him to crash into the building.
The accident caused a gas leak. Vectren and emergency crews remain on the scene.
