Woman Crashes Car Through Building in Lower Hudson Valley
A rather bizarre incident unfolded Tuesday when a woman crashed her vehicle through an empty building. Hudson Valley 12 says that he same woman had just gone though a drive-thru at a nearby McDonald's Tuesday evening before suddenly crashing her Ford Escape through the former HSBC bank.
Not too much is know, though a witness said the woman looked tense and angry as she went through the fast food drive-thru. When McDonald's employees asked her for her order, she reportedly did not respond. Instead, she drove across two loans of traffic on nearby Nepperhan Avenue in Yonkers and went sailing though the structure.
Officials say the woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries. It is not known at this time if she had suffered a medical crisis, or had had a dispute with someone before the crash. Hopefully, her injuries are not serious.
People blacking out behind the wheel is a real thing. Back in March 2021, Hudson Valley 12 says that a 70 year-old man crashed his vehicle into a building in Dobbs Ferry. Officials say the accident happed at the Washington's Headquarters townhouses, right off the Hudson River.
The Hudson Valley area has seen several accidents like this over the past few years. In October 2020, a vehicle plowed through the front window of the Drug Mart Pharmacy outside of Monsey in Rockland County. Ramapo police say the crash happened at a shopping center on Airmont Road and Route 59. Another dramatic incident involving a vehicle flying through a structure unfolded back in January 2019. Officials say that a car on the road went airborne, after the driver took a snooze behind the wheel, and then crashed into Kirky's Deli & Pizza in Milton. And in May 2020, two separate accidents occurred in one weekend when vehicles smashed into businesses in both Rhinebeck and Wappingers Falls. Police say both vehicles had jumped the curb, and ended up hitting both businesses.
