STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. - A car crashed into a meat market Monday in Sterling Heights after colliding with another car, police said.

Speed is believed to have been a factor in the two-car crash, officials said.

The Ishtar Meat Market on Ryan Road just south of 16 Mile Road was closed, but there were employees inside.

Police said the driver of an Envoy was involved in a collision, lost control and plowed into the meat market.

Video from one of the employees shows smoke billowing out of the hole in the building where the car broke through.

The second car involved in the crash came to rest in the grass on the side of the road.

A witness to the crash said the Envoy was going "very fast," couldn't stop and went careening into the building.

Three employees were working in the back of the meat market. They were not injured.

The driver of the Envoy has been take to a hospital for treatment.

The owner of the strip mall said the store had just been refurbished three months ago.
