UPPER EAST SIDE (PIX11) — An SUV crashed into a bank on the Upper East Side, injuring the driver but nobody else in a midday accident that could have been a lot worse.

The driver backed onto the sidewalk — going into reverse at full speed — hit several cars, hopped over the curb and slammed into a window at the TD bank located at 1504 Third Ave., which is at the corner of East 85th Street. The driver’s injuries were minor.

The sidewalk has been closed and two lanes of traffic have been shuttered.
