A one-vehicle crash was reported at the Frazee municipal liquor store on the eve of Turkey Days during overnight hours on Friday, July 29.

City workers were at the off-sale entrance of the liquor store Friday morning boarding up the building where the vehicle crashed into the store.

According to the report, the crash involved a store employee, Elizabeth Krejci, 46, of Frazee. Krejci was arrested for fourth-degree driving while impaired and was in custody as of late Friday morning, according to the Becker County Sheriff’s Office.

The Frazee city offices are closed on Fridays, but a city official announced on social media at 10 a.m., that the off-sale portion of the municipal liquor store will remain closed until further notice.

The on-sale portion is open and all scheduled Turkey Days events continued as planned. 

The city urged customers to be patient as crews work to reopen.
