Houston Woman to be Charged in SUV Crash at Post Office

Posted on April 8th, 2010 No Comments

A woman in Houston will face criminal charges after she drove an SUV into a post office, injuring five people.

According to officials with the Houston Police Department, the accident occurred shortly before 9:30 a.m. at a post office in the 3000 block of W. Fuqua near Almeda. Police say tire tracks could be seen heading from the parking lot, across the sidewalk, through the lawn, and into the building. Authorities believe the vehicle jumped the curb, collided with a group of newspaper dispensers, and crashed through a large window to the right of the front entrance.

“We was standing in line, and we just heard a big ‘boosh!’ And we all just tried to get to where we could get to,” witness Randy Johnson said.

Two office workers and three customers were injured in the crash. Two victims were transported to Ben Taub Hospital for treatment. The other three were treated at the scene.

The 64 year-old female driver of the SUV was not injured in the crash, police say. Police continue to investigate the cause of the crash, but say the woman will face serious criminal charges and fines.
