LOMITA, Calif. (KABC) -- A pickup truck smashed into a supermarket Thursday evening in Lomita, injuring four people and spilling produce across the floor before the driver drove away.

The crash was reported shortly before 8:30 p.m. at the Buy Low Market in the 2100 block of Pacific Coast Highway, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The pickup was said to be a light gray Lincoln with a white camper shell. A detailed description of the driver was not available.

The building was determined to be structurally intact after the incident. The supermarket was expected to reopen after a cleanup.
