Firefighters, with assistance from the Battle Ground Police Department and AMR, worked quickly to provide medical aid to the single driver and two restaurant patrons who were injured in the collision.
Extrication tools were implemented to free a victim as the building was shored up to prevent collapse. All injured persons were transported to the hospital via ambulance for further care.
