Amazing surveillance video has been released of a pickup truck crashing into a bar in Little Canada, Minn. Wednesday.

Six people were hurt when the vehicle, driven by an unidentified 51-year-old woman, swerved through traffic and crashed into the establishment, pinning patrons against the bar, CBS News affiliate WCCO reports.

Authorities said medical reasons appear to have been a factor. Police said some injuries sustained in the crash were serious, but not life-threatening.

Patrick Sazenski, a bartender who was inside the bar when the car came through the wall, told WCCO, "We were sitting there and the next thing I know, I see a pole flying through the parking lot. Then I hear this bang and I look and this truck is flying through the wall."
