Pasco County

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A large hole was punched through the wall of a New Port Richey bank after a driver crashed into the building Friday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the driver suffered a medical emergency and lost control of their vehicle near the intersection of State Road 54 and Madison Street. After crashing into the sign, the vehicle traveled through a grass field, over some bushes and across a parking lot before, then it crashed into the wall.

Tire tracks were visible on the grass and the parking lot near the crash site when Eagle 8 flew over the scene Friday morning and saw the driver being carried away on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance. Troopers said the man suffered minor injuries at the scene and was being treated at an area hospital.
