Maine woman crashes minivan into NH laundry

LEE, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a man who was loading his clothes into a washing machine narrowly escaped injury when a minivan crashed through the wall of a coin-operated laundry and came to stop next to him.

John Osambo, of Lee, said he was in the Lee Laundermat on Saturday morning when the vehicle crashed through the wall, forcing him to jump out of the way. He wasn’t hurt, but he told Foster’s Daily Democrat that he was going to finish his laundry elsewhere.

Police said 42-year-old Heather Boettner of South Portland, Maine, told them she pulled her van into the parking lot while talking to her father on a cell phone. Police said she didn’t put the vehicle into park, and that it crashed into the building when her foot slipped off the brake.

No charges were filed.
