Car hits building, smashes window

Medical receptionist Seneca Wolfe responded quickly when the Honda Accord hit the building where she was working this morning. "I didn't see it, but I heard it. I was sitting at my desk and looked up,' she said. "I said, ‘Oh my God' and ran as fast as I could to the car. And my heart is still racing a hundred miles per hour.'

Medical receptionist Seneca Wolfe responded quickly when the Honda Accord hit the building where she was working this morning.

“I didn’t see it, but I heard it. I was sitting at my desk and looked up,” she said. “I said, ‘Oh my God’ and ran as fast as I could to the car. And my heart is still racing a hundred miles per hour.”

Wolfe seemed slightly breathless while describing the incident that happened just before 9 a.m. at the offices of Drs. James Gottfried and Rolland Rogers III. She and fellow medical receptionist Casandra Wolfe swept up thousands of glass shards, the result of the four-door car completely smashing the middle glass pane of the waiting room. The glass spread about 15 feet into the building.

“It sounded like a sheet of glass shattering,” recalled Casandra Wolfe, who is no relation to Seneca.

Licensed practical nurse Susan Richards couldn’t believe how quickly Seneca Wolfe moved after the crash.

“She was like a streak,” Richards said.

When Wolfe got to the car, the woman behind the wheel wasn’t speaking and seemed a bit shaken. The receptionist helped the driver get out of the vehicle.

“Something was smoking. I didn’t want her to get stuck in the car,” Wolfe said.

The Monroeville driver, whose name was not available, was being treated by a doctor shortly after the incident.

“She’s talking fine and everything,” Norwalk Police Capt. Jack O’Neil said moments afterward.

The woman first backed up in the Benedict Avenue parking lot and hit a utility pole. Next, she “shot forward,” O’Neil said.

“She doesn’t remember if she hit the gas or the brake. Obviously, she hit the wrong one,” he added.

O’Neil earlier asked Norwalk Fire Capt. Tom Frey how he liked the start of his day.

“It could be worse,” the firefighter said. “It could have been someone sitting there instead of a (Christmas) tree.”

The police officer agreed.

Seneca Wolfe is my grandaughter-in-law, small in stature with a giant heart. I can visualize Seneca running to help the accident lady. If I ever need help, I hope Seneca is in the neighborhood.

The parking lot isn't the same. Now when you pull in, you park right there in front of the building. Good luck getting out, there's lightposts right in the middle of it. Wonder who will be the one who clips the lightpost first to bring it down? Glad it wasn't me. To the lady who did this, I'm surprised it didn't happen to me too. It's very confusing!

i am very concerned about the safety of everyone on our roads. when a building is not safe from a woman driver, what is safe?i really don't think that women should be allowed to drive, their minds are not focused enough, then on top of that,they feel like the time to apply their makeup is when they are driving!! or the time to talk on the phone is while they are driving. well it's a proven fact that a womans mind can not multitask.. so none of us are safe

Swiss has to be a Brant in disguise. Look at her spelling. Looks like a pre-schooler does her typing. Did you ever notice that everytime she types in the forum, there are no copper or scrap metal thefts reported that day? Fact or coincidence? You be the judge.
