GREENSBORO, N.C. – A driver has been charged after allegedly crashing a truck through the front of a store in Greensboro.

It happened at Dewey’s Bakery holiday store at the Brassfield Shopping Center at 3727 Battleground Ave. shortly before 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The driver, Robert Dick of Greensboro, has been charged with careless and reckless driving. Officers believe the crash was caused by Dick speeding and being distracted.

Three people were inside the store at the time, two clerks and a customer, according to police. Nobody was hurt.
