No serious injuries were reported Wednesday evening when a vehicle crashed into the storefront at Red Mug Coffeehouse and Bake Shop in Superior.

A pick-up truck had apparently crossed the sidewalk and wedged against the front of the basement-level businesses at 916 Hammond Ave., shortly before 8 p.m.

A second car was also involved in the collision, Superior police Sgt. Paul Winterscheidt said. One of the drivers was taken to a local hospital for a blood draw, he said.

Mikhael Moore, a barista, was working inside when he heard the crash happen, just five minutes before closing time.

“I just heard a loud, giant thump,” he said. “I thought at first that someone had fallen. It took a second to realize what was going on. You don’t expect to see giant headlights coming through the basement door.”

Moore said the storefront glass was cracked, but didn’t completely shatter. The store is expected to be open normal hours Thursday.
