DENVER — Authorities say five people were injured when an SUV ran onto a sidewalk and crashed through the corner of a building in south Denver.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson tells The Denver Post (http://dpo.st/1niaxhU ) a Chevy Tahoe crashed into an Accent Optics store at the corner of Colorado Boulevard and East Amherst Avenue just after 10 a.m. Saturday. Four people in the store were injured — two of them seriously.

Jackson says the driver, who appeared to be in his 20s, suffered serious arm injuries.

The SUV, which was traveling on the wrong side of the street, narrowly missed a lamp post and a fire hydrant before it crashed into the building. Jackson says there is no indication the driver tried to slow down before hitting the store.
