Woman drives into Copy Shop

TRAVERSE CITY -- A woman drove off the road and slammed into the Copy Shop on Eighth Street after she failed to stop at the end of Woodmere Ave.

“The driver had a medical issue, possibly a seizure,” said Traverse City Police Capt. Mike Ayling.

The woman, 33, was taken to Munson Medical Center after the incident, which occurred just before midnight on Monday, Ayling said.

No one else was injured, Ayling said.

Copy Shop owner Dan Rickard was doing paperwork in the building when he heard the first thud.

“I thought a tire blew,” Rickard said. “I started to get up to go see if that was true then I heard another thud and then a crash."

The car broke two windows but did not fully enter the building, Rickard said.
