"We jumped up and we went to the door and saw the car half in and half out of the license bureau," Amazing Travel Manager Susan Williams told the newspaper.

Added Jennifer Stover, a clerk at Bryan's Florist: "(It was) like a big boom. The building shook a little bit. My reaction was, 'Oh, my God!'"

A large plate-glass window was shattered and its metal frame was bent in the Tuesday afternoon accident. The branch reopened Wednesday.

Portage police were completing an accident report.
