NEW MILFORD, N.J. – Retail customer service resumed at the New Milford post office on Thursday after a mini-van crashed into the front of the building the day before.

The 38-year-old borough driver was with her 60-year-old father when she accidentally pulled her Chrysler Town and Country into a handicapped space just before 11 a.m., Police Chief Frank Ramaci told Daily Voice.

"When she realized what happened, she apparently went to put it in reverse but put it into drive instead," Ramaci said. "She took out the front window and caused some structural damage."

Neither she nor her father were injured, he said.

"She just was very embarrassed," the chief said.

Inspectors found no major structural damage and said operations could resume.
