An eastbound minivan struck a westbound U.S. Postal Service delivery vehicle, mowed down a mailbox and crashed through a wall of White Rose Day Spa.

The driver of the minivan apparently experienced a medical problem causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

About eight people were inside the business at the time of the crash. Several of them were evaluated for possible injuries.

Police said the minivan was a courtesy vehicle from Miller Motors, which is located just west of the spot where the postal vehicle was hit.

The minivan wound up completely inside the business. A fire reportedly erupted in the engine compartment of the wrecked vehicle.

NYSEG crews were dispatched to the scene to shut off electricity and gas to the building.
