A Pike County woman was seriously injured on Thursday when the vehicle she was driving crashed through the walls of a former Bowling Green business and struck the Mobile Command Center of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Nadine N. Phillips, 36, of Bowling Green, was driving westbound around 4 p.m. on Business Highway 54 in Bowling Green when she slowed her 2004 Ford Explorer to make a left turn from the highway onto 15th Street.
As Phillips waited to make her left-hand turn, her Explorer was rear-ended by a 2004 Ford F250 driven by Eric L. Hancock, 22, of Vandalia.
The force of the collision sent Phillips’ vehicle off the left side of the roadway and into the northern wall of the former Finke Monument building.

Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte examines the damage done to the county’s new Mobile Command Center after an SUV driven by Nadine Phillips, of Bowling Green, became lodged underneath the trailer. Phillips, who was later airlifted and taken to a hospital, was driving westbound on Business Hwy. 54 when another motorist rear-ended her 2004 Ford Explorer and sent the vehicle racing through the former Finke Monument building.
