At approximately 9 a.m., Jesse L. Williams of Lima, lost control of his 2005 Lincoln Town Car, crashing it into the Edward Jones office at 2304 Harding Highway while attempting to park the vehicle in a space beside the building. Williams was transported by Perry EMS to Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
