Car slams into Kiln post office

By WLOX Staff

KILN, MS (WLOX) - The folks at the Kiln post office got quite a scare Tuesday afternoon. Just before 1pm, a car with two people inside went hurling into the building.

The driver of the car told WLOX News she thought she was hitting the brake and hit the gas instead. The car slammed into the lobby, just missing three people. Witnesses said it sounded like a bomb went off.

The Kiln Fire Chief told WLOX News that the post office is structurally damaged, and must remain closed until it is repaired. No one was hurt in the incident.
