A woman escaped without injury—though a building post wasn't so lucky—after nearly crashing her car into a Poway donut shop Wednesday morning.
Around 9:18 a.m. Wednesday, a woman in her 30s or 40s "surged forward" in her Lexus in the parking lot of Donutopia at 14149 Twin Peaks Rd. in Poway, Sheriff's Sgt. David Cheever said.
Though the car never reached the donut shop, the crash did damage a building post in front of the eatery that officers later propped up with beams, Cheever said.
The investigation is ongoing, but alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash and no one was injured, he said. The woman was alone in the car.
