On Wednesday, May 24 at approximately 5:30 p.m. the Park Rapids Police Department and the Hubbard County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of an SUV that had crashed into the front entrance of the Hugo's Grocery Store. According to the Park Rapids Police Department, the adult male driver appeared to have accidentally hit the accelerator rather than the brake pedal. The vehicle ran into the building nearly striking several pedestrians who were leaving and entering the store. No pedestrians were struck or injuries reported. The driver of the SUV was transported to the hospital for evaluation. There are no pending charges against the driver at this time, the police department said.
