UPDATE: Forcht Bank struck by vehicle

WHITLEY CITY — WHITLEY CITY —  Forcht Bank was forced to briefly close yesterday morning due to structural damage caused by a vehicle accident.

    Patsy J. Crisp, 67, of Stearns had pulled her 2005 Buick LaCrosse into a parking space in front of the bank before 10:30 a.m. According to McCreary Sheriff’s Det. David Sampson, Crisp thought she put her foot on the brake pedal but instead hit the gas, striking a column before coming to rest against the brick facade. The impact cracked the inside drywall though the vehicle did not go through the building. The bank reopened after the damaged wall and balcony were shored up.

    Neither Crisp nor her passenger, 69-year-old Christine A. Coffey of Stearns, required EMS transport. One woman inside the building, 24-year-old Kameron Wilson, sought medical attention privately for a minor arm injury suffered as she attempted to get out of the way of a potential impact.

    Kentucky State Police Trooper Craig Reed is leading the investigation and was assisted by Det. Sampson as well as other officers from KSP and MCSO. McCreary County EMS and Whitley City Fire Department also responded to the scene.
