A Food Lion in Hickory is closed after a woman drove into the front of the store Wednesday afternoon.
Hickory Master Police Officer Spencer Marks said a 90-year-old woman got her foot stuck on the gas pedal of a Chrysler Pacifica and drove into the store not long after 1 p.m. He said she caused “pretty substantial structural damage” to the supermarket in the Viewmont neighborhood of Hickory.
Signs deeming the store unsafe were posted on the store. No one was hurt.
Marks said the woman is not facing charges and described it as an “unfortunate accident.”
The car had been cleared from the scene by 2:45 p.m.
Employees were turning shoppers away from the store. It was not clear Wednesday when the store would reopen.
