A pickup truck whose driver suffered a medical emergency crashed into Macy’s department store at the Maine Mall on Monday morning.

The driver and a passenger were both taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, according to South Portland Police Lt. Todd Bernard.

The crash occurred when the driver experienced an unspecified medical emergency while behind the wheel. The pickup took out a fire hydrant before it struck the side of Macy’s, causing minor damage to the building.

The hydrant will have to be replaced, Bernard said.
