GIBSONIA, Pa. - A car crashed Wednesday morning through the doors of a Richland Township post office, ending up entirely inside the building.

The crash happened at the post office in the 4000 block Gibsonia Road in Gibsonia.

"I was walking inside and they said lucky nobody was in the area when it happened," said customer Judy DeJohn. 

The vehicle went 30 feet inside the post office, into the mail shorting room where postal workers were nearby. 

Accoridng to police, no one was hurt. The driver told police she accidently accelerated, instead of hitting the brake. 

Investigators said medics were called to the scene to evaluate someone.

The 82-year-old driver was with her 51-year-old daughter at the time of the accident. 

"I don't know," DeJohn said. "Maybe they need to start testing when you turn a certain age." 

The driver will not face charges, according to police.
