It happened around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at Jackie’s Starr Mart & Café on Old Highway 81 South in Starr.
A store clerk told us a man in his late 80s was driving the truck when it came through the building. She said it caused heavy damage to their kitchen area.
According to the highway patrol, the man’s foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator.
The store clerk told us the store manager and the driver were both injured. She said they were both about to be transported to the hospital by ambulance. They were both talking and alert.
The café, which is on private property, is closed for now.
There are no charges.
We will keep you updated as we get more information.
