Three Hurt When Car Crashes Into NY CU
GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (3/8/13)--Three people were injured Thursday morning when a car plowed through the entrance of Grand Island (N.Y.)  FCU and into a teller counter before it came to rest fully inside the building.

The impact pinned a member and an employee inside the building for some time, said Grand Island Fire Co. Chief Kevin Coch (WIVB.com and WGRZ.com March 7). They and the driver of the car were taken to the hospital, and their injuries are not serious. The employee and driver had leg injuries.

Two elderly women were inside the car, and the driver could not recall exactly what happened, said the fire department spokesman.  The incident occurred around 9 a.m. ET.

Since the car went perfectly through the front door of the building, crews at the site said the building didn't suffer structural damage beyond the front door and the counter.

The credit union closed and is still closed today. According to a notice on the $12.8 million asset credit union's website, "The office will be closed Thursday and Friday… due to damage to our building. Check back over the weekend for updates. The hope is that Monday, March 11th, will see us back in business. Thank you for your understanding."
