A semi-truck crashed into a dentist's office Monday afternoon in White Bear Lake, injuring the driver and two people inside the building.

White Bear Lake Police, emergency medical workers and the White Bear Lake Fire Department responded just before 1:15 p.m. to the crash at the White Bear Dentists offices, near the corner of White Bear Avenue and the entrance ramp to westbound Interstate 694, according to a police department news release.

Police said the semi-truck took the exit ramp off I-694 westbound, crossed all lanes of White Bear Avenue and then crashed into the building at the northwest corner of the intersection.

The driver and two people inside the building suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a hospital, according to the release.
