Anchorage man drives car into post office Saturday

Posted: Monday, May 11, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police say a man drove his car into an East Anchorage post office, barely missing people standing inside.

Police say the elderly man drove his car into a handicapped spot Saturday afternoon before the accident at the Russian Jack Post Office near the Northway Mall.

Officer Tom Mackin said the car came to a stop, but the man apparently suffered some sort of a medical condition that caused him to pull his car forward, where it plowed into the building.

Mackin says the car was stuck partially in the post office. The unidentified man was hospitalized, and police continue to investigate.
