LAKEWOOD, Colo. (KKTV) - Two people were hurt when an RV plowed into a Denver-area doughnut shop Monday morning.

Emergency crews responded to Winchell’s Donut House off Colfax and Pierce in Lakewood around 7:30 a.m. The RV crashed into at least one table as it careened into the building, eventually coming to a stop at the counter.

The business was open at the time of the crash. One of the two injured was a customer, who was thrown across the room after his table was hit. Firefighters say his injuries were not life-threatening and that he was alert and talking to firefighters at the scene.

The driver of the RV was taken to the ER. The extent of their injuries are unknown.

Firefighters rescued a dog trapped in the RV after the crash. The pup was uninjured and is currently with animal control officers.

What caused the driver to crash into the building remains unclear.

Editor’s note: Officials initially said no one in the building was hurt but have since corrected that. The article is updated to reflect the new information.
