The accident occurred about 11 a.m. Saturday, according to Tonganoxie Police Chief Jeff Brandau. A 33-year-old Tonganoxie man was driving east on Fourth Street when his vehicle struck the Tonganoxie United Methodist Church mailbox, clipped a parked car and then drove into the front of Graves Talent Studio at the southeast corner of Fourth and Green streets.

The man told police he fell asleep or passed out when the accident occurred.

There were no injuries and the man was not found to be impaired.
