Shards of glass and metal litter the sidewalk on East 16th Street near Sheepshead Bay Road, after an unlicensed driver lost control of his vehicle and plowed into the window of a Chase Bank.

Those at the scene said the vehicle was in reverse, backing out of the B49 bus stop, when he apparently hit the gas instead of the brakes. The car spun out at around 1:00 p.m., and backed through the glass window of the bank at 1519 Sheepshead Bay Road.

Police arrested the 20-year-old male driver for being behind the wheel without a license. The female owner of the car was inside the bank at the time of the accident, and did not face any charges.

No one was injured in the incident.

    So Chase now has a drive-thru window.
    Very convenient.

    Luckily no one was hurt or killed. First CVS a few blocks away and now this. Let’s see if the window gets repaired faster than the one at CVS which took about two months, I recall.

    On the other subject.

    It definitely is becoming more of a three ring circus around here, as the boom in Brooklyn’s formerly best kept secret continues. The scariest part is that the powers that be at our local precinct on C.I.A. and W, either don’t seem to care, or are not held accountable enough, to enforce the vehicular, and other common sense laws. Any sober driver knows, we have a number of questionable folks driving on our streets, and a number of them can be seen speeding down Neck Road too, despite the Stop, signs! Be careful out there!

      I keep saying that our wonderful 61st Precinct is useless. They do nothing except park ilegally on Sheepshead Bay Road, and eat in Dunkin Donuts. Their boss was promoted for doing nothing.

    I’m still trying to figure out…

    1) Why the idiot decided to jump in the driver’s seat and drive
    2) how he hit THAT window when the car was parked on East 16th Street initially

      I will attempt to answer your questions:

      1) HE GOT INTO THE DRIVERS SEAT AND DROVE BECAUSE HE IS AN IDIOT / AND THE IDIOT WHO OWNS THE CAR OBVIOUSLY LEFT THE KEYS IN THE IGNITION.

      2) CHASE IS ON 16TH STREET, THE CAR WAS PARKED BY A METER ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE. THE DUMBASS PUT THE CAR INTO DRIVE, FLOORED THE GAS, ENDED UP DRIVING ONTO THE SIDEWALK, DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO BREAK, AND VOILA! A NEW DRIVE THROUGH WAS CREATED.

      It is the only way that I can think of as to how this happened.

      i’ll give a shot at it…

      1) When ever someone parks there car on a bus stop or hydrant the person or people usually asks to sit behind the wheel so if a cop comes out he’ll think the person is about to move or whatever and doesn’t ticket the car… a cop or meter maid probably came out and said you gotta move! the bus can’t get threw… so he paniced and “tried to drive off without knowing wtf he was doing he made a U turn hit the reverese and smacked the gas before he knew it, he was all up in the bank.

      2) Illegally parked, Bus stop = $115 Ticket. needed to get out before the chick comes back from bank.
