BLOOMINGTON — Bloomington Police responded to two crashes with injuries Tuesday afternoon, one involving an overturned car on Morrissey Drive and another in which a car crashed into a building.

Police were called about 4:40 p.m. to the 1700 block of Morrissey where at least one vehicle rolled over in the crash involving two vehicles.

One person was thrown from a vehicle during the collision, and several people were taken to the hospital with injuries. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening, police said.

Morrissey was closed from Rhodes Lane to Veterans Parkway for several hours while a police accident reconstruction unit worked.

Authorities received a call at 4:17 p.m. about a crash at 1111 W. Market St., a commercial building that appeared to be vacant at the intersection of Market and Western Avenue.

Three vehicles were involved in the collision, including a gray Pontiac Grand Prix that crashed through a plate-glass window and ended up inside the building. A utility truck and an unspecified third vehicle also were involved, police said.

Firefighters said two people were taken from that scene to the hospital with minor injuries.

By about 5:30 p.m. the car was pulled from the building and the windows were being boarded up.

Additional information was not available on the crash.
