Police issued a citation following a hit-and-run incident where a driver allegedly ran into the Bank of America at 12 Mile Road and Little Mack Avenue at about 8:25 a.m. Nov. 28.

According to a press release from the Roseville Police Department, a gray, newer Ford Edge allegedly failed to stop and ended up driving into the south side of the bank building itself, pushing in the wall and knocking objects loose.

Surveillance footage showed that the vehicle then pulled away and fled the area. A bank employee was injured when objects inside the bank dislodged from the impact and struck the employee. Police had no further information on the victim’s condition as of Dec. 3.

Deputy Police Chief Don Glandon said the driver of the vehicle had been identified Dec. 2 thanks to information from an anonymous resident. The driver reportedly told police that she had spoken to someone in the bank’s parking lot and assumed that was all that was necessary.

“The driver is an elderly Roseville resident that admitted responsibility,” Glandon said. “She was issued a citation.”

The vehicle did not appear to have extensive damage to its front end from the impact.

The bank was still secure despite the incident, according to the press release.
