Two downtown Poulsbo businesses were damaged when a vehicle drove into them Monday afternoon.
Neither the driver nor the two people inside the businesses were hurt.
According to the Poulsbo Fire Department’s Facebook page, crews arrived at about 1:15 p.m. to find a single vehicle had driven into the buildings along Jensen Way.
The Poulsbo Police Department said the incident was caused by an elderly person who had just had their hair done at one of the businesses and accidently hit the gas rather than the brake, hopped the curb and drove into the businesses.
No charges have been filed and due to the accident occurring on private property it is unlikely any will be but the driver will be asked to participate in a driving evaluation, Police Chief Ron Harding said.
City engineers removed the car from the businesses and inspected the buildings for structural damage. Owners of the businesses could not be reached for comment.
