Car smashes through post office again

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - 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. Luckily no one was standing in that area and no one was hurt. The woman in the car is also okay. It looks like a freak accident, but this has actually happened before.

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

The building has been secured for the night and a repairs will be made Wednesday. The post office will stay open.
