Police said a 70-year-old woman was behind the wheel of an SUV with another woman when she, for some reason, drove up on the sidewalk to the front of the store and hit the two men.

She stopped just short of the store.

The passenger was taken to the hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening. The driver wasn't hurt, stayed on scene and cooperated with police, the department said.

Police said on Wednesday the exact cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Impairment doesn't appear to be a factor, investigators said.
