PORTLAND, Maine — A 56-year-old woman escaped serious injury Thursday night when the car she was driving struck an apartment complex, according to police.

The woman, whom Portland police Sgt. Dean Goodale declined to identify, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene and released, Goodale said Friday afternoon.

Goodale said the woman’s 1997 Toyota Camry struck a minivan near the intersection of Brackett and Danforth streets just before 7:30 p.m., which caused her to lose control of the vehicle and crash into the building.

“The two vehicles collided, causing her to veer off the road,” Goodale said.

The van struck a utility pole, according to Goodale, but that vehicle’s driver was not injured. Nobody in the apartment building was injured, either.

Goodale said no charges will be filed in relation to the accident. The woman’s car had front-end damage.
