SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A close call on Tuesday afternoon when a car smashed right through the front of a post office at the corner of Montgomery and 52nd Street.

Police say an elderly woman hit the gas instead of the brake and drove right into the lobby.

No one was standing in that area and no one was hurt.

Police say the woman in the car is also okay.

"This same thing happened a few years ago. Another customer took out the same place except they just took part of their vehicle through the window. This time they took the entire portion," Postmaster Denise Holguin said.

The building has been secured and repairs will be made on Wednesday. Holguin said the post office will remain open.
