VIENNA — One person sustained apparently minor injuries after a vehicle crashed into the windows and door of Athena Health Center in the 1600 block of Grand Central Avenue Thursday morning. Vienna Police Sgt. A.N. Harris said the driver of the 2011 Lexus SUV, Vienna resident Merrell Oshea, 78, reported she was attempting to park when the car “lunged forward.” As the vehicle struck the glass, it pushed a chair into the knee of a woman sitting in the waiting room, Williamstown resident Laura Van Kuiken, Harris said. She was taken to the hospital by a friend to be checked. No citation was issued because the crash occurred on private property and no drug or alcohol use was suspected, Harris said.
