The University of Wisconsin Credit Union, at 44 E. Mifflin Street, will remain open for the day as crews work to repair the glass doors and door frames, however they do warn that it may be more difficult to actually get inside.

According to Madison police, the driver got out of her car and forgot to put it in park. They said the vehicle then rolled over a curb and into the glass doors.

The vehicle was removed from the scene by 9 a.m.

No one was injured during the incident.
