Traffic on Augusta's Western Avenue has been slowed today (Nov. 14) because of a single-car accident by the post office.

At about 3:30 PM, a car was visible up on the sidewalk near the front doors of the building facing Western Avenue, causing traffic to slow as police dealt with the scene.

It was not readily apparent what caused the car to leave the road and go towards the building. No lanes are closed, except where police vehicles are parked at the scene,

but be advised that traffic might be slower in the area.
