Lt. Ken Romane of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department told ABC News that the driver of the truck was a woman in her 80s. The woman reportedly lost control of her pickup truck and crashed through the store’s front doors.

The truck continued to travel through the store up the frozen food aisle, plowing through about four of the cash registers and coming to a stop in the meat section about 80 yards into the store, Las Vegas’ ABC affiliate KTNV reports.

Nine of the 26 injured were taken to nearby hospitals. Two of the nine were children.

Police are reviewing surveillance video.
