Mobile clinic truck rolls into Salvation Army building

DENVER - Structural engineers were expected to check out the damage done to the Salvation Army building Thursday morning after a mobile-clinic truck rolled into the building overnight.

The truck from the Stout Street Clinic had been parked in an alley behind the Salvation Army building at 2136 Champa St.

Just after 2 a.m., the truck somehow lost its brakes and rolled several feet backwards into the building, according to a Denver Fire Chief on scene.

The impact damaged the exterior walls of the building. Firefighters inspected the inside of the building but didn't find any significant damage.

Fire crews said a tow truck would have to be called in to remove the truck.

Denver Fire trucks blocked off the southbound lanes of Broadway at Champa Street while crews were on scene.
