An 85 year old BB&T customer began the new year with her first ever accident. She drove her car into the entrance of the BB&T branch office on Anderson St. in Piedmont. The bank was not open at the time and the driver was not injured.
A Piedmont firefighter who responded to the accident said this was the fourth time in the last 8 years that a similar accident has happened. Last year a car went through the brick into an office. To help protect the bank, yellow cement barriers were installed in front. This car went in-between two of them.
