A driver managed to escape serious injury when he lost control of his Ford F-150 pickup truck and it slammed into the side of Hobart's Country Store, 2514 Main St., near the Wilmington town line, Sunday afternoon.
Witnesses told police they saw the vehicle jump a curb and slam into the sided of the building at around 1 p.m. Emergency Personnel responded quickly to the scene of the crash.
The driver of the truck, who was not identified by Tewksbury Police, complained of chest pain and was taken by ambulance to Lowell General Hospital Saints Campus for treatment.
