Crews are on the scene after a SUV crashed into a building on Friday afternoon.

Joel Despain, a spokesperson with the Madison Police Department, said it happened at Ha Long Bay restaurant in the 1300 block of Williamson Street around 3:10 p.m.

Despain said early information indicates a male driver may have had some sort of medical emergency before striking the restaurant. There is structural damage to the building. The building has been evacuated.

He said the male driver was not seriously injured. No one inside the building was hurt, but a passerby was hit by a brick that fell at the time of the impact. The passerby said he is okay. He didn't go to the hospital.

The road in front of the building is closed. Drivers are being asked to use an alternative route.
