SASKATOON – Saskatoon police dealt with two separate incidents involving vehicles striking buildings in the city on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called to a collision around 2:15 p.m. involving a business in the 3000-block of Diefenbaker Drive.

A van breached a wall of a Salvation Army thrift store and one person was trapped inside the vehicle.

Firefighters used a winch to pull the van away from the building and then removed the driver.

A store employee was also injured in the collision.

Both of their injuries considered to be non-life threatening.

Fire officials say damage to the building did not compromise the integrity of the structure.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, police were called to the 3300-block of 33rd Street West where another vehicle had collided with a building.

Police say a truck jumped a curb and broke through a window of a convenience store around 10 a.m.

No one was injured in this collision.

The driver of the truck was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention.
