A Sturgeon Bay art gallery suffered minor damage Saturday after a dog drove a sports utility vehicle into the side of the Fairfield Building. Megan Lundahl of Pearl of Door County heard the crash of a later model Jeep Grand Cherokee into the exterior of her store. The accident occurred about 10:45 am Saturday morning when an apparently parked vehicle crossed through Michigan Street with only a dog inside. Lundahl, who was alone in the store at the time, saw an unfazed border collie-like dog sitting in the vehicle that plowed into the building. Fortunately, she says no one was hurt, and the jolt to the building caused dented-in windows and a crack in the interior wall.
Lundahl adds that the vehicle owner was visiting the business across the street when the incident happened. She playfully says that with her store planning a move to a new location on South Third Avenue, "it was God's way of telling her to get moving." No injuries were reported, and more details will be made available on Monday from the police report.
