ALLOUEZ, Wis. (WBAY) - Emergency crews could be seen at a store in Allouez Tuesday afternoon after a vehicle hit the building.

The incident involves the Green Bay Home Medical building, located on the 2000 block of Riverside Drive in Allouez.

A witness who was inside the store at the time tells an Action 2 News reporter at the scene that the vehicle “flew” over the ditch and slammed into the building.

According to officials with the Green Bay Metro Fire Department, the driver of the vehicle was the only person injured, and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

“The occupant was very lucky. Missed a power pole and some major rocks when she came to a stop into the building. It could have been a lot worse than what it was today,” said Mike Vandenavond, Battalion Chief for the Green Bay Metro Fire Department.

Fire officials add cosmetic damage was done to the building.

The director of HME says the store is closed the rest of the day, and anticipates reopening Wednesday. Cleanup and the process of boarding up windows will be done Tuesday night.
