From the Dennis Fire Department (verbatim):

DENNIS PORT (MA) – An elderly man lost control of his Honda Element at 7 Lower County Road, the Swan River Fish Market. The driver and passenger were both taken to Cape Cod Hospital with non-life threating injuries. The operator apparently had a medical emergency while in the parking lot waiting for the fish market to open.

The vehicle struck a hand rail in the front of the building then proceeded to the rear of the building, breaking through a fence, going over a cement embankment and striking a walk in cooler building out back.

The damage to the building was minimal however the town’s Building Inspector Nick Mayo was called to the scene.
