Sheridan Media News has learned it was a 2002 Toyota Sequoia that crashed into the Starbucks coffee shop at the corner of Coffeen Avenue and Brundage Lane this morning at 6:08.

Sergeant Travis Koltiska with the Sheridan Police said the vehicle was traveling north on U.S. Highway 87, or Coffeen Avenue, and left the roadway for an unknown reason, plowed through the landscaping around the building, and crashed into the southeast corner of the building where vehicles would exit the drive-through lane.

Koltiska said it was apparent the driver of the vehicle, an unidentified 60-year-old male, was not wearing a seatbelt, as he received lacerations on his head from the windshield. Koltiska classified the injuries as minor. The driver was transported to Sheridan Memorial Hospital for care. No one else was reported injured.

The vehicle was towed, but not impounded by the police for any reason.

Koltiska said there was a close call with the incident because a customer was sitting in that corner of the building immediately before the collision occurred, but had gotten up to pick up their drink order moments before the vehicle crashed through the wall and window.

Starbucks is closed until further notice.

The incident is under investigation, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
