The preliminary investigation revealed that McBride may have suffered from a medical condition when she drove her 2011 Chevrolet pickup truck through the glass front doors of the Apple Valley Natural Foods store in Holland Township, Wolffis said. When emergency crews arrived, they found McBride still inside her vehicle, which was completely inside the store.

The store was closed because of excessive damage, Wolffis said.

The accident is still under investigation. Wolffis said alcohol was not a factor.
