Pickup Crashes Into Restaurant In Viborg


Updated at 1:25 p.m.

Authorities are investigating a crash involving a pickup and a restaurant in Viborg that’s prompted another building to be evacuated and an intersection in town to be closed.  

It happened Wednesday morning.  Several hours later, the pickup remains in the building and crews are working to stabilize the structure.

The building across the street has been evacuated because authorities are concerned that if the restaurant collapses, it could send bricks flying into the area. 

The Turner County Emergency Manager has also closed the intersection of South Dakota Highway 19 and Park Avenue. 

The driver has minor injuries; authorities are looking into whether a medical condition played a role in the crash.
