    A motorist going too fast behind the wheel slammed into bank in Mira Mesa Friday morning and wound up getting stuck, officials said.

    The accident happened around 9:15 a.m. at a U.S. Bank in the 4900 block of Mira Mesa Boulevard.

    San Diego police said the driver was allegedly speeding and lost control, plowing into the bank building. Her vehicle then got wedged between the building and a tree.

    Aerial video of the scene showed the driver’s front bumper snugly against the building and the back bumper up against the trunk of the tree.

    One of the structure’s pillars sustained a large crack but police said damage to the building was minor.

    The driver complained of pain, but her injuries are unknown. No other injuries were immediately reported.
