2 Hurt As Pickup Crashes Into Kansas Storefront

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ Police in Hutchinson say mechanical
trouble may have sent a pickup truck through the front window and
into a Dollar General store.
The pickup's driver was unhurt, but two other people were taken
to hospitals after the crash Sunday afternoon. One was reported in
serious condition at a hospital in Wichita. The other was treated
at a Hutchinson hospital for what were described as minor injuries.
The driver pulled into the parking lot but for some reason was
unable to stop. The vehicle crashed through the front window and
rolled about 30 feet into the store. Police said there were no
indications that drugs or alcohol were involved.
Hutchinson officials said the store didn't sustain major damage.
Workers began replacing the front window within hours.
