A man was hospitalized Monday after the truck he was driving crashed into the entrance of a Huntington Beach Vons grocery store near the intersection of Atlanta Avenue and Magnolia Street, police confirmed.

Jennifer Carey, a public affairs manager for Huntington Beach, said the incident took place at 12:18 p.m. when the vehicle, a black Ford F-450, ran into the building near the entrance of the store, located in the Landmark Plaza shopping center.

There were no other occupants in the vehicle, and it is not believed that any other vehicles, pedestrians or shoppers were involved in the collision, Carey reported.

“We did hear reports of a medical emergency,” she added. “[But] we haven’t been able to definitively confirm what happened. There was no sort of criminal activity, so it was primarily fire assistance.”

While the identity of the driver was not being released to the public, Carey said the man was in his 30s, but no precise age was given. His condition as of Monday afternoon was not known.
