Executive Editor

KENNEBUNK — The law firm of Jens W. Bergen in Kennebunk received an unexpected visitor Thursday afternoon when a vehicle was unable to navigate a turn and smashed into the building which houses the law offices.

Kennebunk Police say Justin White of Lyman, 23, failed to turn left correctly from Ross Road onto U.S. Route 1 about 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

White's Mazda passenger sedan left the roadway and traveled between a condominium sign and a utility pole before it struck the building at 79 Portland Ave. in Kennebunk.

The driver was not hurt in the crash, but a passenger riding in White's car was taken to the hospital suffering from minor injuries.  

No occupants of the attorney's office were harmed and damage to the building was not significant, police say.  

The crash remains under investigation and no charges have been filed yet regarding the accident.
