Impromptu drive through

An elderly driver put his vehicle in drive instead of reverse and crashed through a window at the Main Street Scotia Bank Wednesday.

A damaged van sits outside the broken window at the Main Street brranch of Scotia Bank after the elderly Surrey driver mistakenly put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse Wednesday. Police said a bank employee who was sitting near the window at the time was fortunate to escape injury as most of the glass from the window was deflected downward by a plexiglass enclosed poster she was seated behind.
