According to Platoon Captain Kelly Stephens, when crews arrived there was heavy smoke and flame at the front of the building and the car next to the truck that crashed into the Tim Hortons was also on fire.

“There was a fire in the building upon arrival, it was knocked down quickly,” said Stephens. “There was also an occupant in the truck, three to four workers inside, possibly three customers, but everyone got out safely.”

It’s unclear if the driver of the vehicle was trying to go through the drive-thru when the incident happened, however witnesses said the man driving the truck was removed from the vehicle unconscious.

Several customers were also looked over by BC ambulance with undetermined injuries.

RCMP is on scene investigating the incident.
