A 76-year-old woman drove to the E-Check building Tuesday afternoon to get her car checked, while navigating to the garage door somehow got off track and struck the building.

Amherst Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics responded and treated the driver at the scene then transported her to Community Health Partners with minor injuries to be further evaluated.

Employees at the scene stated that they don’t know what happened, she was going fine then all of a sudden just turned to the left and struck the building.

The Amherst Police Department is investigating the crash.
