Man mistakenly hits gas, turns vacant store into drive-thru

Elderly man crashes pickup truck into Ace Hardware Store building in Tenino

An elderly man suffered from some sort of medical condition while he was sitting in his car at the Post Office in Tenino Monday afternoon.  He accidentally hit the gas and his silver pickup truck sped into the Ace Hardware building.  Luckily, the building is vacant and no one was inside.  The man was taken to the hospital to be checked out, but at the scene he appeared to be more shaken  than injured.
