Saturday around noon, a 90-year-old woman (per police report) made a right turn from Marshall Avenue onto eastbound Manchester, missed a parked car, and swerved onto the sidewalk in front of Foundation Grounds, according to a witness who was driving two cars behind the car as reported to 40 South.
The description of the accident: “There were a lot of people sitting outside and a bunch of them had to jump out of the way. She flattened a street sign, one of those things that is shaped like the Arch, plowed/sideswiped into the building. I think that there was a hole in the side of the building. It all happened so fast!”
The photographer said no one was hurt.
