Tonight as we headed home from some late-night grocery shopping, Howie did a double-take as we passed Huntington Bank on North 21st Street.
It looks like someone took a little detour through the front of the building. By the time we drove by, the driver was gone and people were inside the bank cleaning up broken glass and debris. Howie turned the van around so I could take a couple of pictures. Here’s one of the shots. Film at eleven.
Update: No one was injured, thank God. Here’s the story out of the local paper, The Advocate:
1 person cited for crash into bank
Advocate staff reports
NEWARK — One person was cited in the crash that left a hole in a North 21st Street bank Thursday night.
The crash occurred at about 9:15 p.m. when Ryan S. Gee, 25, of the 400 block of Catalina Drive, Newark, was driving westbound on Catalina Drive and turned south onto North 21st Street in front of a northbound vehicle driven by Troy Jones, 18, of the 100 block of Parana Drive, Newark.
Jones attempted to avoid the crash, but still clipped the rear of Gee’s vehicle. Jones swerved, leaving the road and crashing into Huntington Bank, Frey said.
No one was injured.
Gee was cited for failure to yield when turning left.
