An early morning crash Sunday sent one woman to hospital and sent car parts crashing into a nearby bank, landing on a counter and “popping” open a money till, local sheriff’s deputies report.


At 1 a.m. Sunday, an SUV driver lost control of the vehicle on Golden Valley Road near Via Princessa Road.

The vehicle hit a tree, a power line and fire hydrant, said Sgt. Ron Price of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Monday.

“A wheel and axel went spinning off and gathered speed and went crashing through the Bank of Santa Clarita on Golden Valley,” Price said.

“It went through the bank’s ceiling, lands on the counter and pops open the money drawer.”

Firefighters and paramedics with The Los Angles County Fire Department responded to the crash at 1:11 a.m. Sunday, a department spokesman said.

“The vehicle went into a hydrant in front of Lowe’s (Home Improvement),” he said.

Southern California Edison was also dispatched in response to the damaged power pole.

The driver was rushed to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for injuries to her neck and back.
She is identified as Sonia Byrne, 45.

The investigation is ongoing. Speeding and alcohol are suspected in the crash, sheriff’s deputies report.
