An engineer will inspect the stability of the University of Kentucky-Good Samaritan medical offices on East Maxwell Street after a sport-utility vehicle crashed into a wall Tuesday morning.

Fire department Battalion Chief Joe Best said three rooms were damaged. Firefighters were called to the building at 8:43 a.m. because a black Lexus SUV hit a wall next to parking spaces reserved for handicapped drivers.

The woman driving the SUV was not seriously injured, and no one was in the three rooms that were damaged.
