Updated at 12:22 p.m.

An 80-year-old woman was not injured after driving her Subaru Outback through the front of the Sequim Post Office today.

Sequim police and Clallam County Fire District 3 responded to the incident around 11:35 a.m.
Officers at the scene said the crash was "a mistake."

Post Office employees said cars have driven into the building before, which is why large yellow cement posts were placed in the front. The posts did not deter the Subaru.

The service window will be closed until tomorrow, employees said.
