Wells Fargo spokesman Ruben Pulido said in a statement that the company is grateful no one was injured and the historic stagecoaches on display weren't damaged.

The museum is at the site where Wells Fargo opened for business in 1852.

Commuters stopped to look at the aftermath of the robbery and snap pictures, while police surveyed the damage. Shattered glass crunched underneath the tires of a tow truck pulling the green Chevrolet Suburban from the building.

Police weren't immediately available for comment.
