Appleton Police say no one was hurt after a car crashed into the Gabriel Furniture building in Appleton. 

This happened Thursday, about 5:45 p.m. on E. College Avenue. 

Police say a vehicle hit the building after a car crash. 

After investigation of the building it was determined that there was no structural damage that would present additional hazards. However, several of the glass-pane wall pieces were destroyed from the car hitting the building near the front entrance.

The Appleton Fire Department helped the property owners by securing the building, with a temporary wood frame wall section, until the owners could have insurance company representatives and contractors fix the damage. 

The Appleton Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash.
