KELOWNA- A truck crashed through the front window of a bank in Mission Park Shopping Centre Tuesday afternoon.

The driver of the Ford truck crashed through TD Bank’s front office window around 4 p.m.

He was seen by witnesses exiting the truck by himself, but Paramedics later took one man to hospital. It is not yet known if he was the driver.

Gail Williamson was just meters away when the accident took place.

“He was just trying to adjust his truck, trying to park in the stall, and kind of backed out to get square and went a bit too far,” says Williamson.

“He bounced over the curb and at that point just lost it and went slamming across the sidewalk and into the bank.”

It is currently unclear if anyone else was seriously injured.
