No injuries were reported Sunday after a car crashed into the Pine Grove Mills post office.

The incident occurred at about noon at 112 E. Pine Grove Road, a Ferguson Township news release said. The driver, Ruth Dorpowsky, 77, reportedly pressed on the accelerator instead of the brake pedal and struck the building.

Dorpowsky was uninjured, the release said.

Centre Region Code Administration temporarily condemned the building until a detailed inspection can be completed, the release said. The post office will remain closed until the building is deemed safe.

A car fell from the fourth floor of a Maryland parking garage, sending it and its driver plummeting to the ground below. Baltimore County Police say the driver of the vehicle was not seriously injured in the March 14, 2016 accident.
