One person was injured Monday morning when a vehicle crashed into a store in Fort Pierce.

The St. Lucie County Fire District posted photos of a car that went through the front of Buddy's Holiday Truck and Van on U.S. 1.

One person was transported to the hospital. Fire rescue described the injuries as non-life threatening.

Elaine Mathews was standing behind the counter when the accident happened. She says, "It was scary. The concrete, the glass, everything. And then the lady in the car was screaming. And that's not a way to start a Monday."
