WYOMING, Mich.  -- The Wyoming Department of Public Safety says six people were injured Wednesday afternoon when a pickup truck struck a parked van, then plowed into a bank.

The D.P.S. says the pickup truck left the roadway, hit the van in the bank parking lot, and then careened into the bank, causing significant damage:

"The van that was struck had three occupants, all of whom were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries," says Wyoming Public Safety in a news release. "Thankfully, only minor injuries were reported by two people inside the bank. The driver and only occupant of the pick-up truck was also transported to a local hospital for treatment. His condition at this time is not known."
