Three people hospitalized after car drives into Siloam Springs School

Three people were sent to the hospital after a car crashed into Siloam Springs Intermediate School Sunday night.Police say the driver was going between 75 to 80 miles per hour. “They were going too fast. We don’t even believe that the breaks were ever utilized.”According to Police PIO Captain Derek Spicer, the three people are in critical condition. He was not able to release their identities yet. According to superintendent Jody Wiggins, the car drove into the gym about 40 feet away from where a truck had driven through the school in January. The Assistant Superintendent Shane Patrick told 40/29 News that contractors were securing the area. And the gym should reopen to students in 1-2 weeks. “We hope in the next two weeks we can have the interior wall repaired. The exterior wall will take longer, so we have to order the brick that matches the building. And we have some repairs to make to the gym floor. The will happen during the summer,” Patrick said. He said that school officials plan to meet with the city to determine if any changes need to be made since two accidents have happened within three months of each other.
