Car takes out front window of credit union in Brookswood

Witnesses say it happened while the driver was trying to park

A car crashed into a Brookswood financial institution Saturday afternoon, smashing through a front window.

Witnesses told the Langley Advance Times it appeared an elderly couple in a small sedan were trying to park, when they knocked out an awning support beam, then hit the front window of the Coast Capital Savings credit union at 4145 – 200th Street.

Rob Peterse said it appeared the car hopped over a low-level concrete parking barrier and went up on the sidewalk.

Ruben Friesen said staff in the credit union looked like they were “in shock,” as were the older couple, but no one seemed to be seriously injured.

Friesen said the man had one arm in a bandage.
