— A man who Selma police say crashed his pickup truck into a Selma convenience store Monday afternoon won't face charges, authorities said Tuesday.

Jerry Davis, of Kenly, had a diabetic reaction while driving, authorities said, which led to his truck hitting two vehicles on U.S. Highway 301 before slamming into the Lighthouse Food Mart convenience store.

Five people, including Davis, suffered minor injuries.

Police said damage to the store is estimated to be about $60,000. Damage to the vehicles Davis' truck hit hit is about $40,000, they said.

No customers were in the store at the time.

Monday was the second time in a year that a vehicle crashed into the Lighthouse Food Mart. In December, a tractor-trailer hit it. The store had recently completed repairs from that crash.
