The SUV driver who rammed into an Eagan Starbucks Monday night and seriously hurt two patrons was drunk at the time, authorities said Tuesday.
Ihar Daniliuk, 44, of Eagan, was jailed early Tuesday on suspicion of felony criminal vehicular operation in connection with the crash shortly after 9 p.m. at the coffee shop in the 1400 block of Central Park Commons Drive. He has yet to be charged.
Stanton M. Baldwin, 29, of West St. Paul, and Macy L. Olson, 30, of Eagan, were being treated at Regions Hospital in St. Paul and remained in serious condition late Tuesday morning.
Officers spoke with Daniliuk at the scene and “believed him to be under the influence” of alcohol, police said in a statement Tuesday.
The SUV went over a curb, through the patio and punched out a window on the south side of the building.
Police say the building did not show any structural damage, and the business should reopen Wednesday.
