ATLANTA -- One person was reported dead and another person injured in a one-vehicle accident Friday afternoon at a Walgreens store in Buckhead.

Atlanta Police said the driver of a pickup lost control of their vehicle and slammed through a retaining wall into the parking lot of the Walgreens store on Roswell Road at about 3 p.m.

Police said Calvin Sims, 59, was walking out of the Walgreens store and headed back to his car when the truck careened through the retaining wall and hit him, killing him.

The driver of the pickup, police said, had suffered from a medical condition when the truck went out of control. He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment.
