A day after a Toyota RAV4 crashed through the front of the public library, injuring six, the library director was overseeing the cleanup of the extensive damage.
The saving grace for Allen and the first-responders is no one died in the crash, which happened around 7:40 p.m. Tuesday.

The injured include a 15-year-old girl who got hit and pinned under the vehicle

. Police said she was released from Westchester Medical Center on Wednesday.

The driver, Jean Lycee, 58, has been released from Nyack Hospital, Spring Valley police Lt. Jack Bosworth said. No charges have been filed; detectives are investigating Lycee's claim that mechanical trouble caused the car to speed forward out of control.

"I see what looks like a bomb hit the library," said Finkelstein Memorial Library Director Tracy Allen. "We have glass everywhere. We have a huge pile of wood and computers. It's pretty devastating."

The sport utility vehicle shattered the building's double glass front doors and cut the long circulation desk in half, smashing several desks and computers.

Allen, who became director of the county's largest library some 20 months ago, said there's no timetable for reopening the library, a longtime community center for people living in Spring Valley and the surrounding area.

As cleaning crews worked and the library's entrance remained boarded up, Allen said the repair costs will be determined by the library's insurance adjuster.
