Pacifica Post Office to reopen after car crashes into building

The Pacifica Post Office will reopen its retail service area Tuesday, nearly a year after a vehicle crashed into the building and caused extensive structural damage.

The vehicle hit the front of the building at 50 W. Manor Drive on Sept. 21, 2015, causing major damages to the retail window area mainly, according to postal officials.

Police Capt. Joe Spanheimer said the driver was a 58-year-old Millbrae woman who accidentally drove forward through the plate glass windows into the lobby of the post office.

The post office was closed at the time and there were no injuries, Spanheimer said. The driver was not arrested.

While repairs were made to the Pacifica Post Office, the Postal Service transferred retail service to Linda Mar Station and to the Daly City Post Office, postal officials said.

Postmaster Beth Dayao will attend Tuesday’s reopening of the Pacifica Post Office at 9:15 a.m.
