EAS­TON — The driver of a Ford Es­cape SUV was not in­jured Wed­nes­day, Oct. 26, af­ter her ve­hi­cle crashed through the front en­trance of Dankmeyer Pros­thet­ics & Orthotics off Idlewild Av­enue in Eas­ton.

Ac­cord­ing to Eas­ton po­lice, Mary K. Craw­ley, 62, of Centreville was in the park­ing lot when she ac­ci­den­tally pressed the ac­cel­er­a­tor pedal in­stead of the brakes. Her ve­hi­cle went over the curb and straight into the front en­trance of the build­ing, caus­ing dam­age to the door­way and small foyer.

A build­ing in­spec­tor deemed the build­ing safe for oc­cu­pancy, how­ever the front en­trance to Dankmeyer Pros­thet­ics & Orthotics was boarded up, and oth­ers were asked to use a dif­fer­ent en­try and exit be­hind the build­ing, po­lice said.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the ve­hi­cle was driv­able, but was towed due to a cracked wind­shield.

Po­lice said Craw­ley re­fused treat­ment at the scene. No­body else was in­jured.
