The name of the driver that crashed into a Heartland grocery store on Sunday has now been released.

According to the Milan Police Department, Adam D. Tong, 49, of Milan, crashed into Richardson's Supermarket.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m., at the store located on North Pearl Street in Milan.

Authorities told KTVO that Tong was attempting to get as close to the store as possible, when his vehicle went over a concrete parking bumper. As a result, his SUV went through the front electric doors and partially into Richardson's. Tong then reportedly tried to back his vehicle out of the doorway, but hit a parked car in the process.

Tong was issued two citations: one for driving while suspended, and another for careless and imprudent driving.

A store employee told KTVO Sunday night the incident resulted in a big scare for both employees and shoppers.

Tong was not injured in this crash and no injuries were reported inside Richardson's Supermarket.
