GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A driver of a U-haul truck found out the hard way Friday evening that you can't drive a tall truck under an area with low clearance.

Firefighters said the driver was attempting to drive through the ATM lane of TD Bank just off The Parkway in Greenville, when the top of the moving truck hit the eave of the roof.

The eave of the roof came tumbling down around the truck. A beam fell onto the vehicle's windshield, shattering it.

The manager of the bank said the branch will be open Saturday, but will not have drive-through service.

There was no immediate word on injuries.
