A Vineland Fire Department truck

VINELAND — Police, fire and emergency medical services were at the Regal Cumberland Mall Stadium 14 Wednesday afternoon after a car crashed into the movie theater, fire Lt. Paul Harvey said.

The call went out at 1:18 p.m. Eleven firefighters arrived to see that the front of a Chevrolet had hit the right side of the main entrance to the theater, Harvey said.

The car had to have gone over the curb and over a walkway to hit the theater, Harvey said. EMS attended to the driver at the scene.

Harvey was unaware of any theater employees or patrons who were injured.

The city building inspector looked at the damage to the building. The car sustained front-end damage from the impact, Harvey said.

By 2:13 p.m., all of the firefighters from Stations No. 2 and 6 had left the scene, Harvey said.

A phone call to the theater Wednesday evening revealed the theater was still open.
