Original Story Follows:
A Ford Taurus crashed into the Perkiomen Fire Company, Perkiomen Township's joint polling place, at 12:50 p.m.
According to Jan Laverty, a volunteer at the polls, a man was driving slowly into a parking spot along the side of the fire company when he sped into the building, crashing into a side door that led into the polling place.
"It seemed like he mistook the brake for the gas," said Laverty. "He just pounded into the door - he flew forward really hard."
Laverty said that people inside of the building were intially concerned that the noise, and the accompanying smoke through the door, was a bomb.
One voter leaving the fire company said that the vehicle crashed into an empty spot within the polling place - there were no injuries, and no voting machines were affected.
The unidentified man was transported from the scene by an ambulance.
