Pa. CU activates disaster plan after truck crashes into branch
LEBANON, Pa. (12/16/08)--The Lebanon (Pa.) FCU branch activated its disaster plan after a pick-up truck crashed into it early Sunday morning, knocking a hole into a wall and damaging computers and the communications system. Police say a 24-year-old driver lost control of his Chevy Silverado about 12:45 a.m. The vehicle left the roadway and crossed both concrete islands at the drive-thru window before crashing into the southeast side of the building (Life is a Highway Dec. 15). No one was inside the building at the time of the accident. When police arrived on the scene, they found the driver and vehicle inside the credit union lobby. The driver was taken to the hospital, where a routine blood alcohol test was performed. Charges are pending the results of that test, police said. Glenn Rambler, Lebanon executive vice president, said the branch was closed Monday for repairs, although the credit union should be open in some capacity today. The $130 million asset credit union’s ATM is operating. Extra staff will be at two other branch locations in Myerstown and South Lebanon Township. The credit union activated its disaster plan and posted a notice on its website to alert members to the situation and encouraged them to use services at other locations.
