Narberth, PA —  Fire and police were dispatched to the Bryn Mawr Bank Building for what was reported as a car that crashed into the building at 732 Montgomery Ave. last Tuesday at 12:50 PM.  Lower Merion Police and Narberth Fire Company personnel responded to the scene.

The single-car accident appeared to be caused by a driver that lost control of the vehicle in the parking lot and backed into the doorway at the Bryn Mawr trust bank.  No one was injured, but the entrance to the rear of the building was destroyed. The car appeared to have little if any damage. The brunt of the damage was to a glass doorway and its framing.

After reviewing the photos from the incident, the TAPinto team started wondering what a relatively minor accident like that could cost.

We put in a quick call to the folks at Bonnie the owner of Michael’s glass. They agreed to provide us a ballpark estimate based on what they could see in the pictures.  Within hours we had our estimate, and we were surprised:

The cost to repair the door would be $10,000 or more. That is assuming that there was no structural damage to the building.
