Mercedes smashes into Kettering Post Office

UPDATE @ 2 p.m.

The building did not sustain any structural damage, but a glass front door and some side light windows will need replaced at a cost $2,000 to $3,000, according to a Kettering fire official.

An older woman was the driver. She was not injured, according to the official.

U.S. Postal Service officials will need to assess the damage to determine when the office will reopen.
