The incident took place at the Main Street Commons building, off Main Street (U.S. Highway 141). Green Bay Police were dispatched to the scene at around 10:45 p.m.
While the cause of the crash remains unclear, but preliminary details indicate a 29-year-old Green Bay woman was driving a minivan that hit one of the building’s structural support beams, causing part of the building to collapse. Witnesses recalled seeing the vehicle travel recklessly prior to the wreck.
Authorities said the female driver, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and her passenger, a 27-year-old Oneida man, were both taken into custody.
Motorists were asked to avoid driving through the area in the immediate aftermath. University Avenue, East Walnut Street, and East Mason Street were recommended as alternate routes for the time being.
An investigation remains underway.
