(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A medical issue caused a driver to crash into the Missouri Highway Patrol Troop H headquarters Tuesday afternoon.

Troopers said the female driver was attempting to turn north from the parking lot of the Smoothie King when she suffered a medical issue and briefly passed out.

The vehicle traveled across the Belt Highway jumped the curb and traveled across the lawn of the Troop H Headquarters before striking the building.

The woman was not injured from the crash but was taken to Mosaic Life Care by Buchanan County EMS.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash and the building so far did not appear to be damaged.

Temperatures are very mild outside right now with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Today will be another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. Today we will have mostly sunny skies with a few clouds building in during the evening hours. Outdoor burning should be avoided today as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
