Out of order

A Tuesday afternoon fender-bender in the parking lot at the Shelburne Post Office knocked over both drive-up mailboxes, damaging them enough to be removed. Shelburne Police said no one was injured in the accident. Police said Jeanne Detenbeck, 86, accidentally put her car in reverse and it struck the mailboxes and another vehicle at the mailbox. A postal official said new boxes will be ordered and installed in about two weeks. In the meantime, postal customers will need to drop off mail inside the post office.
