The University of Minnesota told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that no one was injured in the crash.
A Minneapolis Fire Department spokesperson said that no one was in the restaurant at the time and two people were on the bus – the driver and one passenger. Neither person was injured.
An engineer was called to the scene to check the structural integrity of the building because the bus possibly hit and damaged a structural beam, MFD said.
