JUNCTION CITY, Ore. - A vehicle crashed into the front of a Safeway store in Junction City on Sunday afternoon.

Officers determined that an 88-year-old man had driven through the windows at the southern end of the store, which is located at 1755 Ivy Street.

The path of damage went from the entrance, through the floral department and ended in the produce section, where the car came to a stop.

The vehicle was occupied by the driver and two other occupants who refused medical transport. One customer in the store was struck by debris from the collision and sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle cooperated with investigators, who determined the incident was accidental in nature and that no criminal charges will be files, nor citations issued.
