Driver hospitalized after pickup truck crashes into building

Police say a driver was hospitalized after a pickup truck crashed into a building in Phoenix.

The crash happened near Seventh Street and Dunlap early Tuesday morning, and firefighters say the driver was transported to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

No one was inside the building at the time of the crash.

Napoleon Morizan has owned this shop for the past 16 years, and he said this is the worst accident he's seen so far.

"Amazed. Amazed, and I'm glad the gentleman was OK and survived the crash," said Morizan. "I was blessed that I wasn't here. No customers were here. It was in the morning."

Police told Morizan that the driver had a medical condition and became unconscious. The man reportedly drove his pickup right through the metal garage doors.

"Basically, this beam supports this wall, and that's the problem right now," said Morizan. "The Fire Department said we have to have an engineer look at it."

Morizan said it's too dangerous to keep his shop open, while it's being repaired.

"Any minute, the walls fall off, and somebody can get injured," said Morizan.

The crash is putting Morizan and his employees out of work for a while.

"It's affecting me drastically, because this is how we make our living," said Morizan.
