(Updated at 10:45 a.m.) A car slammed into the side of an Arlington bank on Saturday.

The incident happened before noon at the BB&T Bank (1100 S. Walter Reed Drive) near Columbia Pike.

No one was injured when the car rammed the bank, nearly running through a set of double doors, according to the local firefighter association Twitter account. No structural damage to the building was reported.

The crash was “a classic case of mistaking the gas pedal for the brake,” said Arlington County police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. The vehicle struck a parked car before crashing into the bank’s ATM vestibule.

The driver was charged with reckless driving, according to Sternbeck.
