Two teenagers were injured when they crashed a vehicle into the rear loading dock at Walgreens early Tuesday morning, the Valley Regional Fire Authority reported.

At approximately 3:30 a.m. VRFA crews responded to a vehicle into the Walgreens store, 1701 Auburn Way S., and found a silver SUV in the rear of the building. The driver and passenger, boys in their late teens, were injured. One was taken to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, the other to Harborview Mecial Center, the VRFA said.

The building sustained little damage. The store remains open for business.

Auburn Police are investigating the crash. At this time it is unknown if drugs or alcohol played a factor.
