Vehicle Crashes into Perkiomen Polling Place

A Ford Taurus crashed into the Perkiomen Fire Company just before 1 p.m.; the polling place remains open for voters.

A Ford Taurus crashed into the Perkiomen Fire Company, Perkiomen Township's joint polling place, at 12:50 p.m.

According to Jan Laverty, a volunteer at the polls, a man was driving slowly into a parking spot along the side of the fire company when he sped into the building, crashing into a side door that led into the polling place.

"It seemed like he mistook the brake for the gas," said Laverty.  "He just pounded into the door - he flew forward really hard."

Laverty said that people inside of the building were intially concerned that the noise, and the accompanying smoke through the door, was a bomb.

One voter leaving the fire company said that the vehicle crashed into an empty spot within the polling place - there were no injuries, and no voting machines were affected.

The unidentified man was transported from the scene by an ambulance.

This is just too easy. They let people like that vote and drive cars. LOL
