A car crashed into the window of 85C Bakery Cafe at 21 Shattuck Square on the corner of Shattuck and University avenues at about 10:12 a.m. this morning.

85C was open at the time of the crash. The car, a black compact vehicle, shattered the window facing University Avenue and resulted in one minor injury that was then treated on the scene, according to Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Andrew Frankel. The driver was not hurt.

Officers arrived on the scene within minutes, according to Frankel. By 11 a.m., the car was removed from the storefront window and being towed off the scene.

The collision created a minor detour on Shattuck Avenue, with minimal impact to local traffic.

An investigation revealed that two cars collided on University Avenue forcing one car to hit the 85C window on Shattuck Square.

No arrests have been made as no drugs or alcohol were revealed to be involved, and both parties fully cooperated with the investigation, according to Frankel.
