WESTBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - Police launched an investigation after a car barreled through a bank in Westborough Thursday morning.
Emergency crews responding to a reported crash at Peoples United Bank on Lyman Street found a car stopped inside the building with glass shattered around it.
Westborough Fire Chief Patrick Purcell said the driver claimed they made a mistake behind the wheel.
“They indicated that they had a failure to navigate the accelerator and the brake and accidentally struck the building,” he said.
There were no reported injuries.
“Had that been a few more minutes when the business was open, we probably would’ve had a tragedy there,” Purcell said.
Cleanup remains underway.
The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation.
