GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were taken to the hospital after a car crashed into a bar in Grand Rapids early Monday morning.

It happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday at Metro Grand Rapids on Division Avenue north of Burton Street.

The conditions of the two people hospitalized were not known later Monday.

Police told News 8 that at least one of the people injured was standing in front of the bar having a conversation before being hit. No one inside the bar was hurt.

Police said alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash. The driver was arrested for operating while intoxicated.

A representative for the bar says the driver was not one of its patrons.

Metro Grand Rapids, which opened in late July, posted on Facebook that it would be closed for a few days as a result of the crash.
