GLENVILLE - The Route 50 CVS remained closed Sunday, two days after a driver gashed a hole in the side of the building in a crash.

Signs on the pharmacy's locked front door turned away a steady stream of customers Sunday. 

The handwritten notes cited structural damage and directed pharmacy customers to the Burnt Hills, Scotia or Target CVS pharmacies to get prescriptions filled.

A yellow paper provided a more formal notice from the town building department of an unsafe structure. The notes did not indicate how long the might be closed.

The damage happened Friday afternoon when an SUV driven by Alfred Cooper, 92, of Glenville, lost control in the adjacent Sunmark Federal Credit Union parking lot, drove over a snow bank and hit the CVS building twice before careening into a tree and coming to a stop. Cooper was taken to the hospital for observation.

Further details on the investigation were unavailable Sunday.

The signs up Sunday.
