According to an anonymous police source, the driver accelerated through the wall of the ATM room and went straight on through to the other side. The Verona Police Department responded and immediately checked underneath the car for potential victims; they were relieved to find none. Both the Verona Rescue Squad and the Verona Fire Department also responded. 

The driver reportedly was able to get out of the car without assistance and appeared unharmed. Traffic along Bloomfield Avenue was snarled for over an hour afterwards.
