The Manchester Police Department says the driver of a 2017 Nissan Rogue jumped a curb and slammed into the front of the store.

Police say the driver was unable to apply the brakes because a bottle of water fell onto the floorboard and rolled under the brake pedal.

The driver and passenger were taken to a nearby hospital to be checked out.
