A Massachusetts bank is cleaning up after a car crashed through the facade Thursday morning, fire officials said.

Westboro fire officials responded to the crash at People's United Bank on Lyman Street at about 8 a.m., an hour before the bank opened.

The driver of the Tesla, a man in his 60s, was not hurt.

"Had that been a few more minutes when the business was open, we probably would have had a tragedy," Westboro Fire Chief Patrick Purcell said.

Images from the scene showed the car inside the bank and shattered glass on the floor.

Officials believe the driver hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.
