AUSTIN – The driver of a pickup truck was taken to the hospital after she crashed her truck into an apartment building Monday morning.
Police responded to the Park Plaza Apartments near Park Plaza Drive and Interstate 35, near Rundberg Lane, and tell KVUE they believe the driver of the truck had dropped her car off at a nearby dealership and crashed shortly after picking up a rental vehicle.

“I checked on my brother, he was okay, but then I opened the door, I saw a big truck next to the restroom, and I'm just like ‘What happened?’” Mendoca said.
Mendoca said the driver of the truck was unconscious. The condition of the driver has not been released. The Red Cross is assisting those displaced by the crash
