MEDFORD, Ore. --

UPDATE: The U.S. Post Office on Riverside in Medford will remain closed until the building is deemed safe to go inside, according to a USPS representative on the scene. They will be sending for officials from Portland to come and check the building's structural integrity.

According to Medford Police (MPD), emergency services were notified of the crash just after 10 a.m. They believe that the crash was the result of driver error.

The driver told officers that his foot slipped off the brake as he pproached the building, causing his pickup to lurch forward into the side of the Post Office.

Officers have not cited the driver, but MPD indicated that the Department of Motor Vehicles will likely require that the driver re-take the test for his license to ensure that he can still properly operate a vehicle.
