Frustrated patient crashes truck through clinic doors

A woman drove her pickup truck through the entrance of Springfield, Mo.-based Jordan Valley Community Health Center after expressing extreme frustration with staff, according to a report from the Springfield News-Leader.

A witness told the newspaper the driver was screaming and swinging her purse around outside the clinic before getting into her car. She told a reporter she decided to drive her truck through the clinic doors, "Because they won't give me my medication," according to the report.

Though three people were in the lobby during the crash, no injuries were reported.

The woman was arrested on the scene, according to the report.
