Car hits law offices PDF E-mail

Four people were injured Friday afternoon in a freak accident that sent a vehicle through the front wall of the law offices of Michael Powell and Ross Luzum in Aurora’s Central Park Square.


Margaret Schneider and Nola and Richard Cooper were all transported to Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries, with Schneider hospitalized two nights. Law office receptionist Lorena Garrett also suffered minor injuries.



According to the accident report, Nola Cooper, 75, of Aurora, was pulling her 2009 Ford Edge into a diagonal parking stall in front of 1218 L St., when her foot slipped off the brake and onto the accelerator.


The vehicle went up and over the curb and on to the sidewalk, where it hit a no parking sign. The vehicle continued across the sidewalk and smashed through the front wall of the building and into the front office, where it hit the front counter and Schneider, knocking her to the floor. The impact also sent the counter and debris flying toward Garrett, knocking her off her chair.
