On April 2nd, 2021 at about 12:29 p.m., officers responded to Providence Hospital, for a vehicle that drove into the building. Upon arrival, officers discovered a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 had driven through the front doors of the north entrance to one of the buildings on the Providence Campus (see map). The male driver was immediately detained without incident. Luckily there were no injuries.
The investigation revealed that the male driver intentionally drove into the building, and drove 110 feet into the front entrance hallway, stopping at the elevator. The damage to the building is excessive and the amount is not known at this time.
Officers believe the driver was having a mental health crisis, and provided him with appropriate care. Criminal charges are pending. His name is not being released at this time.
