There is extensive damage to the outside of the building. The SUV also hit several street signs and a tree before hitting the building.

“We’re talking about tempered glass, you know, that’s thousands of dollars right there,” said GM Tobacco owner Bagis Wazwaz. “We’ve got a lot of product behind it, a lot of, you know, stuff, neon signs, you know. That’s a lot of money.”

Two people were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, but their conditions have not been released. There is also no word yet if anyone was arrested
