Car accident Holiday Inn Express, 1.12

Lincoln Fire and Rescue crew members check out a van that jumped the curb Wednesday morning and crashed into the new Holiday Inn Express at Ninth and O streets.

A minivan crashed into a downtown Lincoln hotel's building Wednesday morning.

The crash happened at the new Holiday Inn Express shortly after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, and the van was towed from the scene at Ninth and O streets shortly thereafter. The vehicle's front airbags deployed in the crash, which broke at least one pane of glass from the building facing O Street.

Lincoln Police Capt. Duane Winkler said Wednesday afternoon that he hadn't yet seen a report on the crash and didn't know whether anyone was injured.
