2 injured after vehicle goes airborne, plows into Longmont bank

LONGMONT, Colo. -- Two people were injured after a vehicle plowed into a bank on Monday morning, the Longmont Police Department said.

The incident happened at the First Bank branch at 1270 S. Hover St., on the corner of Ken Pratt Boulevard.

Police said the driver, a 32-year-old man from Boulder or Lafayette, tried to make a left turn from Ken Pratt Boulevard onto Hover Street at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle jumped through an island, went airborne, took out a tree, then went through the parking lot and into the bank.

The man was taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. A bank employee suffered minor injuries from flying glass.

The parking lot was littered with debris, including tree branches and a bumper, in the aftermath of the crash.

Police are investigating the possibility that drugs or alcohol might have played a roll in the crash.
