LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas grocery store reopened Sunday morning, a day after a woman in her 80s drove her pickup into it, sending nine people to hospitals with minor to moderate injuries.

Police are investigating the cause of the 2:50 p.m. accident at a crowded Food 4 Less store that caused another 17 people to be treated at the scene for cuts, scrapes and bruises.

Police Lt. Ken Romane told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/1mPmcuE ) there were no life-threatening injuries.

He says the woman was driving through the parking lot when "for some unknown reason" her pickup went through the front door and ended up in the rear of the store.

He says the accident caused "significant property damage."

The driver, whose name wasn't released, stood outside the store afterward. She didn't suffer any visible injuries and she wasn't taken into custody.
