A 55-year-old male crashed his pickup truck into the Key Bank in Silverdale Monday afternoon, while attempting to take out money from the drive-thru ATM, according to Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver was placed under arrest for DUI after admitting to consuming red wine. The driver was found to have a BAC three times the legal limit.

The driver was the only person involved in the incident and he did not sustain any injuries, KCSO Public Information Officer Scott Wilson said. The driver of the Ford F-150 complained to deputies that the accelerator was stuck and that his model of truck had a recall on it for that exact problem. Deputies stated that recall was regarding trucks which suddenly shifted into first gear, regardless of speed.

According to a synopsis provided by Wilson, the truck hit the side of the building and then went backwards in an arc where it struck the pillars and building again. One witness told deputies that the truck narrowly missed striking him as he was standing in the drive-thru. The witness then helped the driver turn the engine off.

The driver was booked to Kitsap County Jail with bail set at $5,000.
