Car crashed through funeral home, injuring two.


Police in Rapid City say the driver of a vehicle that plowed into a local funeral home might have suffered a medical problem before the crash.
The SUV with two men inside crashed into the Behrens-Wilson Funeral Home on Sunday.

Police say there's evidence that the passenger tried to steer the vehicle after the driver became incapacitated.

Funeral Director Wade Wilson says the vehicle was completely inside the building, and despite the damage it is a miracle no one was hurt.
"It was a loud bang, almost like an explosion, my first thought was a gas explosion, so I looked closer and there was a vehicle in the building. No one was hurt thank God, because there were people in the building, it could have been a lot worse," says Wilson.
The two men were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
