Police in Eagan are investigating how an SUV ended up crashing into a Starbucks on Monday.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. at the Starbucks on Central Park Commons Drive, with a picture shared by Eagan Police Department showing the Mercedes SUV having crashed through the glass walls of the coffee shop.

Two Starbucks customers were injured in the crash, and had to be taken to a local hospital for treatment along with the driver.

At this stage it's not clear how the SUV came to crash into the premises, but police told KSTP that it's possible that distracted driving was involved.

"When they are in shopping areas like this they need to pay attention to the people in front of them and driving at slower speeds and obviously not distracted whatsoever," Sgt. Jenni Wegner told the TV station.
