On Monday, February 13, 2017 at approximately 12:18pm, a 68 year old female was attempting to park a 2003 Ford Focus station wagon in one of the front parking spaces of Crossville’s United States Post Office, at 240 Old Jamestown Highway. The driver stepped on the accelerator pedal, mistaking it for the brake pedal, sending the vehicle over the curb, across the sidewalk and front landscaping, then on into the front of the building.
The vehicle crashed through the glass windowed front wall of the service counter area and came to rest against the counter. There were 3 bystanders in the area who received minor injuries and were transported to Cumberland Medical Center by Cumberland County E.M.S. ambulance. The driver was also transported to Cumberland Medical Center for evaluation of any possible injury. There are no criminal charges pending, at the time of this release.
