Kempner City Hall is now closed after a car barreled through the brick City Hall building and ended up in the meeting area Sunday morning.

Our News partners KWTX report that the young woman driving the car was taken to the hospital and already released. An investigation is underway as to how the vehicle crashed into the building off Highway 190.

City Hall will be closed until the area can be restored or a temporary meeting space is found.

Kempner Mayor Dr. Keith L. Harvey thanked all the first responders. Kempner police, Kempner Volunteer Fire Department and Texas Department of Public Safety all responded to the scene.
