Thankfully, no one was hurt, so we can laugh a little over this story. A woman with a walking boot on her right foot accidentally hit the gas instead of the break, and rammed her Mercedes SUV into the front of the Harris County Tax Office in Tomball. The Tax Office, which was being used to store brewery equipment, suffered structural damage.
Bryan Kirk of The Patch Reports: Customers at the Harris County Tax Office got a bit of a surprise Friday morning when a Mercedes SUV crashed into the front of the building. None of the customers inside the tax office were injured. The accident happened shortly after 9:15 a.m., in the 100 block of Walnut Street in downtown Tomball.
Bruce Kissinger, who owns the Fire Ant Brewpub that is under construction on Market Street, was storing the brewing equipment in the storage area of the building behind the now twisted pull-up doors. Kissinger said he didn’t know yet if the equipment had been damaged by the crash.
“I just don’t know,” he said. “There may have been some crates pushed around. If it was pushed back and hit one of the stainless steel fittings they may have cracked.”
