SW Kansas Post Office Temporarily Closed after Car Crash

A southwest Kansas post office is temporarily closed after a car crashed into the building.

The Hutchinson News reports the crash happened on Thursday in Kismet, a town of fewer than 500 people 20 minutes northeast of Liberal.

Seward County sheriff’s deputies at the scene declined Thursday evening to release any information about the accident without first getting permission from the sheriff, who had gone home for the day.

Post office officials say rural customers will still get their mail delivered as normal, but those who have post office boxes in Kismet will have to pick up their mail in nearby Plains.

Post office spokesman Mike Mannington says the Kismet office will reopen after the building is determined to be structurally sound and the repairs have been completed.
