Minivan crashes into bank in Montebello

MONTEBELLO — A minivan crashed into a bank and caught fire late Friday, though the driver suffered only minor injuries, police said.
The crash was reported about 7:10 p.m. at a Chase bank branch, 896 W. Beverly Blvd., Montebello police Lt. Rich Meadows said.
“Officers found that a vehicle had collided into the west side of the bank and came to rest inside the bank, starting a fire,” the lieutenant.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the burning minivan and treated the man who was driving it for minor injuries, he added.
The exterior and interior of the bank sustained major damage,” Meadows said.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation Saturday, he said, though driving under the influence was not initially suspected.
