        COLD SPRING — It will be business as usual today at the Firstar bank branch that a car crashed into earlier this week.

        Milwaukee-based Firstar Corp.'s retail, security, property management and information systems divisions all worked overtime so the branch could reopen soon, said Steve Dale, Firstar spokesman.

        The hours of operation will be the same as every Saturday — 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

        “They can come in and do whatever they do at their bank,” said Mr. Dale, who did not have a dollar figure on the damage from Thursday.

        On that morning, Harold Carrier, 80, of Bellevue, was southbound on Alexandria Pike when he apparently had a seizure, veered off the road and crashed into the front of the branch at Alexandria Pike and Martha Layne Collins Boulevard.

        He was flown to University Hospital, where he was listed in good condition until his release Friday.

        The crash into the bank also left employee Lorraine Ripberger, 52, of Alexandria, with a large bruise on her leg. She was treated and released from St. Luke East Hospital, Fort Thomas.
