PHOTO COURTESY OF COLUMBIA RIVER FIRE AND RESCUE - Columbia River Fire and Rescue crews responded to a single vehicle crash Sunday, May 6, after a passenger vehicle hit the side of a building on Columbia Boulevard. No one was in the building at the time and the driver denied transport to the hospital. A St. Helens business is temporarily closed after a pickup truck crashed into its storefront over the weekend.

Columbia River Fire and Rescue crews responded to the 2000 block of Columbia Boulevard on Sunday afternoon, May 6, when a pickup truck crashed into the Mailboxes NW St. Helens building.

The truck's driver was evaluated at the scene and declined transport to the hospital following the crash. CRFR temporarily closed one lane of Columbia Boulevard to clear the scene.

No one was in the store at the time of the crash. The business is normally closed Sundays.

On Monday afternoon, Todd Stansbury, owner of Mailboxes NW, said the front area of the building has been secured, but he added it is not safe for customers and the business is temporarily closed. Stansbury said he is making arrangements to provide customers with their mail and packages.

Stansbury said the business and building are insured. The extent of damage to the building from the crash is not currently known, and it is unclear how long the business will remain closed.

More information will be published as it becomes available.
