With glass still scattered across the parking lot, crews finished boarding up the main entrance of Mid-Michigan Physicians.

The scene is a lot quieter than Wednesday, when a 43-year-old man from Lansing rammed his vehicle into the building, reversed and then hit it again.

"I don't know what that motive is. We're not able to determine that right now," said Lansing Township Police Chief, Kay Hoffman. "I can tell you that it doesn't appear to be any type of retribution towards that business or anybody who practices out of that building. But, we don't know why he chose that building at this point."

The Lansing Township Police Department is working through dozens of witness accounts to decide what charges to file.

Two people were hit and taken to the hospital.

"They were there, for whatever reason, and just happened to be there at the wrong time," Chief Hoffman said. "It is very scary that you go into a building like that and receive those types of injuries. You don't expect it, nobody expects it."

As for now, the building is closed and a couple thousand appointments have been canceled.

We spoke to two patients Thursday who drove to the facility for their appointments. Both told us no one from Mid-Michigan Physicians has reached out to them about re-scheduling.

MMP's Chief Medical Officer asks for patience as the staff continues to make calls. But, he said if it's urgent, you should seek medical attention at an Urgent Care or the emergency room.

Right now, the facility is expected to be re-opened on Monday.

The two victims are in critical condition as of Thursday night.

The driver is being held at the Ingham County Jail. He's expected to be arraigned Friday. We'll let you know when he's charged.
