Car crashes into Bermuda Press building
An elderly woman ploughed her car into the front door of Bermuda Press Digital on Burnaby Street today.
The woman was attempting to park her vehicle at about 11.45am when she apparently hit the accelerator instead of the brakes. Nobody was hurt although the front of the Yaris car was crushed and there was a limited amount of damage to the building.
Jonathan Howes, chief executive of Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd, the umbrella company for Bermuda Press Digital, was assisting the motorist to park when the incident happened.
He said: “She was having a hard time parking. She crept forward and hit the brakes and then she crept forward a little more and hit the accelerator and drove into the door.
“The door was unlocked so it was forced open and the impact broke the front glass. The elderly lady was very upset but nobody was hurt.”
Police attended the scene and made inquiries into the incident.
