An 86-year-old woman drove into a home after leaving a bank drive-thru and losing control of her vehicle.

Saugerties Police responded to the incident in Ulster County around 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 26, after receiving notice of a crash on Market Street in the Village of Saugerties.

When police arrived on the scene, officers found that Joan Robinson, of Saugerties, was driving a 2006 Ford Fusion, just leaving the drive-thru at the Sawyer Bank when she accelerated as she entered Market Street, losing control of her vehicle, darting across the roadway and into a home, said Chief Joseph A. Sinagra.

Robinson’s vehicle and the structure sustained damaged in the collision.
