Two diners were injured when an SUV crashed into a Springfield restaurant.

At 4:28 p.m. on April 27, Springfield police responded to the scene of a single-vehicle accident in which a 2015 Mercedes-Benz G55 crashed into the side of the Panera Bread at 500 S. National Ave. in Springfield, according to the Springfield Police Department.

The vehicle was travelling southbound on National and failed to turn eastbound on Elm Street, resulting in the accident.

The driver of the vehicle was uninjured, while two restaurant patrons were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, according to police.

Traffic was detoured for a period of time, but has since returned to normal.

On Friday morning, the west side of the building, where the Mercedes vehicle entered, was boarded up. While the surrounding roads and sidewalks were clear, debris could still be seen inside of the Panera Bread building.

While the circumstances of the crash remain under investigation, driver impairment is not a suspected factor, according to police.
