Hours before a grand-opening celebration at a new credit union in eastern Pennsylvania, a lost trucker crashed the party.
An 18-wheeler plowed into the brand new Bellco Federal Credit Union in Spring Township, Berks County, only a month after it opened.
The driver was headed in the wrong direction around 8 a.m. Tuesday and pulled into the credit union to make a U-turn.
The big rig's tire blew after it careened over a concrete light post, smashed into the roof over the drive thru, snapped a stop sign and uprooted a newly planted tree.
The celebration went on as planned Tuesday and the credit union is open for business. No one was hurt.
Police are still investigating. The driver's name wasn't released.

Overnight look for passing clouds and a few flurries. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks. Lows in the upper teens and low 20s.
The cold stays with us for a few more days with highs around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
