Truck Crashes into Wall of Bank in Marianna, Florida
MARIANNA, FL. – A truck crashed into the wall of a bank building in Marianna, Florida, according to an online news report posted at wctv.tv. It appears the driver of the vehicle lost control on a Marianna roadway, though the reason for the loss of control has not yet been determined by police.*
The crash occurred during the morning on February 17 at the intersection of Caledonia Street and Lafayette Street in Marianna. At approximately 7 a.m. that day, a 2007 Toyota pickup truck (model not reported) was traveling on Caledonia Street and somehow left the roadway, jumping a curb and continuing forward.
The pickup truck then smashed through a chain fence that was enclosing construction at a Wells Fargo bank on the corner of Caledonia and Lafayette. The truck traveled beyond the fence and ended up crashing into one of the walls of the Wells Fargo building. The Marianna Police Department arrived at the scene to find the truck partially inside the building.
The driver of the truck, identified as a man for Graceville, Florida, was injured in the collision. Reports say he was treated by Jackson County Fire rescue and Marianna Fire Rescue. It is not clear if he was taken to a hospital, and the extent of his injuries is not known.
Marianna police reported that the man had been driving at a high rate of speed before he ran off the road. It is unclear what caused him to leave the roadway and ultimately crash into the bank. He was the only person in the truck at the time. Officers are still investigating and have not yet reported whether Canen will be charged.
