Sheriff's deputies are investigating how a woman crashed into the side of a bank. It happened around 11 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Glens Falls National Bank on Main Street in Warrensburg.

Both of these incidents were around 11 a.m. Saturday. Two mistakes...sending two cars into buildings. Thats just too much of a coincidence for me.
