A Nissan GT-R slammed into the VanCity Credit Union branch on Victoria Drive near 40th Avenue this afternoon. The driver was slightly injured but amazingly nobody was hit by the out of control car. Police say speed is a factor in the accident.
One man told News1130 the car stopped right behind him and a police officer told him he’s lucky to be alive.
The Nissan GTR remained wedged in the front of the building, over a small flight of stairs, with its front end resting in some bank machines before being towed away.
A woman waiting at a crosswalk says she was just inches away, and had to jump back, when the car came careening into the credit union’s front entrance.
Damage to the building is extensive.
