A snowblower in eastern P.E.I. crashed into a doughnut shop early Thursday morning.

Kelly Gallant, manager of Robin's Donuts in Souris, said she was woken up at 3 a.m. by someone banging on her door telling her someone had run into her business.

"When I got down here, it was the snowblower man that ran into the side," said Gallant.

"We have two of the side windows broke in and the wall is all pushed in."

RCMP say they are investigating the crash. Damages are estimated to be about $10,000.

Police said visibility was poor at the time of the crash, and charges are not expected.
