Car slams into Chase Bank in Bay Terrace

By Mark Hallum

The Fire Department responded to an incident Tuesday in which the driver of a vehicle jumped the curb and drove through the front entrance of the Chase bank in the Bay Terrace shopping center. The driver, who lost control of the car, had only minor injuries, police said.

FDNY said there were three minor injuries in total, with two people being transported to Northwell, formerly North Shore-LIJ, in Manhasset and a third refusing medical care.

The incident occurred at around 11:53 a.m., and NYPD used a tow truck to pull the car out of the bank. The mid-size sedan sustained heavy damage to the front end.
