— Police said they don't plan to file charges against a woman who crashed her sport utility vehicle into the Dunn post office last week.

Laura Robinson driving a Dodge Durango with two female passengers and drove the SUV past the front columns and flag pole outside the post office, at 1115 S. Clinton Ave., and through the glass front doors Thursday afternoon.

The SUV smashed an island counter near the front entrance, narrowly missing customers inside, witnesses said.

Police said Robinson had a medical condition and accidentally hit the accelerator while sitting in a handicapped space outside the post office.

Robinson was taken to the Betsy Johnson Memorial Hospital for treatment, and one person inside the post office was hit by flying glass.
