From Local Sources
FERDINAND — No injuries were reported after a car-versus-pole mishap Monday afternoon in front of Holiday Foods, 1815 Main St.
Vernita A. Durcholz, 75, Ferdinand, was pulling a 2011 Ford Edge into a parking space at 4:42 p.m. when she mistakenly pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake pedal, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Police said the SUV jumped the curb and struck a roof supporting pole.
Officers placed caution tape around the area until a construction company could ensure the structural integrity of the pole support and room.
Damage was estimated at $2,500 to the car and $5,000 to the building and support pole.
