A crew at Minnesota’s Largest Candy store had their work cut out for them after a car crashed into the Minnesota staple early Sunday, Aug. 11.

Authorities have since determined that alcohol was a factor in the crash, which involved a driver rear-ending a minivan before slamming into the candy store at around 1 a.m. Sunday, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The State Patrol determined that a Honda Odyssey carrying a family from Iowa was traveling southbound on Highway 169 when a Chevrolet Equinox rear-ended it, then went off the road and into the candy story.

The male driver of the Equinox, identified as Jovan Davell Brown, 42, of St. Paul, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, while the family was uninjured.

In a Facebook post, representatives from Minnesota’s Largest Candy store apparently took the accident in stride and assured the public that the candy was OK.

The business has been in operation as usual.
