The two vehicles — one travelling eastbound, the other south — crashed in the intersection of Kingsway and 13th Avenue, sending one car into the front of Edmonds Motors.
The two drivers, a 20-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man, suffered minor injuries and were taken to hospital. No passengers were in either vehicle.
One of the front walls of the shop was completely blown out, with crumpled siding and drywall littering the sidewalk and room inside.
Despite the gaping hole, RCMP said they’ve been told by the Burnaby Fire Department there was no structural damage to the building.
City engineers were at the scene Sunday to assess the damage.
RCMP say the cause of the crash has not been determined, but alcohol is not suspected.
Anyone with information about the crash, including dashcam footage, is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP.
