A truck crashed into the Cleveland Police Department Second District police station Thursday afternoon.
Photos taken by a News 5 photographer show the pickup truck wedged up against a pillar outside the police station, with significant damage to the truck’s front bumper.
According to police, a 2002 Ford operated by a 60-year-old man was driving west on Marvin Avenue when he made a left turn to southbound Fulton Road, into the path of a 2011 GMC operating in the southbound lane. The Ford's right front corner collided witht he left front corner of the GMC.
The Ford then turned left as the operator inadvertently accelerated, and the right wheels went over the southwest curb of Fulton Road and Marvin Ave., then across Fulton Rd., going over the east curb, police stated. The Ford then collided with a concrete garbage receptacle, drove through the RTA bus shelter, collided with a tree and came to reset with the front axle resting on top of a concrete garbage receptacle and against the north pillar of the police station.
EMS transported a 60-year-old man and 32-year-old man, both MetroHealth in stable condition, an official confirmed.
The RTA's #79 bus was rerouted due to damage to the bus stop, confirmed RTA spokesperson Linda Krecic.
