Two women, aged 37 and 18, were injured in a New Jersey car accident after a vehicle crashed into a bank. According to The Star-Ledger, the accident occurred at TD Bank on Georges Avenue in Woodbridge. Officials say a 30-year-old woman stepped on her accelerator instead of the brake, causing her car to crash through the front glass door of the bank. An 18-year-old woman at an ATM suffered minor cuts and a 37-year-old woman suffered lacerations on her foot and head that required medical attention. It is not clear if the woman is going to face citations for the crash.
