by Gair on January 9, 2013

A SPOKESMAN FOR THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE IN PORTLAND, MAINE SAYS INITIAL REPORTS HE GOT WERE THAT NO ONE INSIDE THE TAMWORTH POST OFFICE WAS HURT AFTER A CAR CRASHED INTO THE BUILDING LATE TUESDAY MORNING.

TOM RIZZO SAYS HE HAD A MANAGER HEADING TO THE SCENE TO INVESTIGATE.

HE SAYS HE WASN’T SURE ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE DRIVER OF THE CAR.

TAMWORTH FIRE AND NORTH CONWAY AMBULANCE WERE CALLED TO RESPOND AROUND 10:30 A.M. TUESDAY AFTER THE CRASH AT 182 TAMWORTH RD.

RIZZO SAYS THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY THE POST OFFICE’S RETAIL AND BOX SECTION WOULD BE TEMPORARILY CLOSED OUT OF CONCERN FOR CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES AND ALTERNATE SERVICE OPTIONS MIGHT BE OFFERED.

HE LATER REPORTED A CONTRACTOR WAS ON SITE TO MAKE TEMPORARY REPAIRS THAT MIGHT ALLOW CUSTOMERS TO CONDUCT BUSINESS AS USUAL AFTER A SHORT INTERRUPTION.

FURTHER DETAILS AREN’T IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE.

UPDATE WED JAN. 9, 2013: RIZZO SAYS THE POST OFFICE IS OPEN AND RUNNING NORMALLY WEDNESDAY. PLYWOOD PANELS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED TO KEEP OUT THE WEATHER UNTIL PERMANENT REPAIRS CAN BE ARRANGED. RETAIL AND DELIVERY OPERATIONS WERE NOT AFFECTED.
