Semi Crashes into Kennewick Bank

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- A gust of wind pushed a semi-truck into the front of a Kennewick bank Wednesday morning.

The driver says he forgot to put the parking brake on when he went to breakfast and the wind pushed the truck across the street. 

It ended up in the front door of Key Bank in downtown Kennewick.  

The driver says he wasn't ticketed because it was just negligence on his part.

Witnesses say he was pretty embarrassed.

"I think so, he took off pretty quick, he said he'd be back for breakfast but I don't know," said Brienne Angerman, a waitress at a nearby restaurant.

No one was hurt in the accident, but it did cause damage to the building and the truck, which had to be towed.  

The driver says insurance will likely cover the accident.
