Driver Slams Into Side of Office Depot Building

No structural damage. No injuries.

A driver lost control of her vehicle and slammed it headfirst into Office Depot earlier this week. No one was injured.

The incident occurred at around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. Fairfax resident Sarah Major captured the wreckage while driving past the scene and submitted it to Patch.

Sunday's crash had no structural affect on the building, though the same can't be said for the car.

"There was no structural damage to the building and no damage to any electrical wiring," Fire Marshal Andrew Wilson said. "The car happened to hit the building in a place where there had been a door before. If you look at the picture you should be able to see a difference in the bricks. Pretty lucky overall." 

Police did not file a report because the crash occurred on private property, there were no injuries and no charges filed, said Warren Carmichael of the City of Fairfax Police Department's public information office.

Alcohol was not a factor, Carmichael added.

Editor's Note: Correction made to name of business.

I believe this happened at Office Depot, not Staples.

Yep! Already corrected. Remind me not to write stories this early in the morning.
