Car plows into post office again

Posted: Updated:

A car drove into the Bingville U.S. Post Office on Friday afternoon at 52nd and Montgomery streets.

Police said the driver of a black Hyundai was trying to hit the brakes, but slammed on the accelerator.

The post master told WTOC that it's the third time this has happened at this post office. She said safety features are being considered for this location.

"[It was] frightening, and [we're] just thankful nobody got hurt. We can make the repairs, but when someone's injured you just hope that the driver's OK," said Post Master Denise Holguine.

The driver is OK, but was taken to Memorial University Medical Center. No one else was hurt.

Workers are boarding up the front of the post office.
