An old wives’ tale proclaims, “Lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice.” But it did strike the Coushatta Post Office a second time.
Not lightning, but a motorist!
On Thursday afternoon someone drove into the front of the post office building. Several support pillars were heavily damaged. But the pillars prevented the vehicle from striking the building.
Almost two years ago, a motorist plowed into the east side of the post office. The vehicle took out part of the wall and several windows. See the Journal of August 16, 2017 for the report on that incident.
There is police tape around the damaged area. Patrons can enter by the East door or through the right door at the front of the Post Office.
