The incident happened at 179 East Main Street around 8:45 a.m.

“It was reported by witnesses that the truck was seen traveling above the posted speed limit,” read a Facebook post from the agency.

A “light covering of snow” was also said to be on the roadway at the time.

The building, as well as the truck, sustained serious damage, according to authorities.

The truck driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, while one person inside the store sustained minor cuts and scrapes.
