Motorist drives into Anchor Point Post Office

The Anchor Point Post Office got an unanticipated remodel when a motorist drove through the front of the building Friday afternoon.

An employee and someone nearby called the accident in to Alaska State Troopers around 1:53 p.m., Public Information Officer Megan Peters said in an email.

“It doesn’t appear that anyone is injured/needing transport,” she wrote.

Peters wrote that emergency response services were initially sent to the scene because it was thought the driver may need to be extracted from the vehicle. The driver ended up being able to get out of the black SUV on their own.

As of around 3 p.m., Peters said troopers were still at the scene investigating and arranging for the vehicle to be towed.
