Rebecca Opdahl was shocked when her phone rang just after 2:30 a.m. Thursday-a car had crashed into the side of her donut shop.

Opdahl said the car hit the corner of Opdahl's Donuts, 104 Washington Ave. Northwest in Fertile, Minn., and jammed the door shut. One of the windows shattered, and Opdahl said there are loose bricks and cracks in the wall.

"I'm just in disbelief because that was the last thing I ever expected to hear," she said.

A press release from the Polk County Sheriff's Office said a red Chevy Suburban hit the store and no one was injured. Additional information is unavailable because the investigation is ongoing, the release said.
Opdahl said she's unsure about the details of the crash, but the "driver must've been going pretty fast to hit the corner like that."

The crash will close down the shop until at least Monday, but Opdahl is eager to fix the building and reopen. The regularly-scheduled Friday Pie Day was not able to happen this week.

"We will definitely reopen," she said. "We're not closed, we're just waiting to get the building fixed."
