TOMS RIVER — An SUV smashed through the front of a TD Bank, stopping at the teller's counter, early Wednesday afternoon.
Toms River police spokeswoman Jillian Messina said Anthony Marino, 93, of Toms River was making a left turn from Clover Road onto Route 9 when he lost control of his SUV and accelerated across the roadway and onto the property of the bank located next to the Tri-City shopping center.
The SUV appears to have careened across the parking lot, jumped a curb and smashed through the front doors and window coming to a halt in the back of the bank. Marino also hit a support wire and a light post, according to Messina.
The bank branch shares an entrance with the shopping plaza but is freestanding with its own parking lot.
