Car crashes into North Bend Post office entry; driver was uninjured

The North Bend Post Office is operating as usual this afternoon, following the crash of a car into the building’s front entry. The front entryway of the building was closed immediately after the accident but has since re-opened.

Snoqualmie Police responding to the incident said a woman parked in a reserved handicapped parking space drove into a pillar supporting the building’s front entryway early this afternoon, after getting the gas and brake pedals confused.

The driver was uninjured. The crash did damage one side of the entryway, however, and the two-sided entry was temporarily closed. Patrons could still enter the post office through a door on the other side of the building, however, so the post office did not close down, as previously reported.

The driver of the vehicle accidentally collided with the pillar after confusing the gas and brake pedals. No one was injured. (Evan Pappas/Staff Photos)
