A Martinez woman attempting to park her car drove it into a bank building today.
Crews are making repairs to First Bank Columbia County at 3820 Washington Road. The lobby was closed, but the drive-through window remained open, according to bank officials.
Police say Stacy Nance, 50, of Augusta, was attempting to park her Mercedes-Benz in front of the bank entrance when the car sped over the curb and crashed into a concrete pillar near the entrance before hitting the brick building. The pillar also crashed through a window in a front office.
It appears she hit the gas instead of the brake, Columbia County sheriffs Sgt. Thomas Langford said.
No one was injured in the crash, but the bank employee in the office where the car wrecked was shaken up.
Ms. Nance is not charged in the wreck.
Special security will be posted at the bank until repairs are made to secure the building. The location also will be placed on concentrated sheriffs office patrols, Sgt. Langford said.
