COCONUT CREEK, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating after an elderly man slammed into a post office in Coconut Creek while driving a minivan.
Coconut Creek Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the crash near West Hillsboro Boulevard and Lyons Road, just after 9:30 a.m., Sunday.
Investigators said the 92-year-old driver of the silver minivan accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake and went right through the glass and into the manager’s office.
The crash caused extensive front-end damage to the vehicle and some damage to the post office, but no one was hurt.
The shattered window has been boarded up as a temporary repair.
The post office opened as scheduled on Monday.
