NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A truck crashed into the Sherwin-Williams paint store on U.S. 17 near Ninth Avenue North in North Myrtle Beach Friday afternoon.

North Myrtle Beach spokesman Pat Dowling said a man was driving south on U.S. 17 when he crossed the median, knocked down a light pole, went into and then out of a drainage ditch, and then crashed through the wall of the store.

Dowling believed the man involved is 70 years old, and was taken a nearby hospital. There were no details on his condition, or on the cause of the crash.
