Post office reopens after car plows into it

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah post office is back open Wednesday after a close call.

Police say an elderly woman hit the accelerator instead of the brake and drove right into the lobby of the Montgomery Street post office.

No one was standing in that area and no one was hurt. The woman in the car is also OK.

A vehicle has hit that same post office 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.
