Driver had just left a bar, police say

SAN ANTONIO – A driver who was showing off his new truck in a Northwest Side parking lot somehow ended up plowing into the front of a business, according to San Antonio police.

Officers answered a call about the crash around 1:30 a.m. Thursday and found the driver, a man in his 30s, still at the scene.

They told KSAT 12 News that he had just left a bar in the area and was testing out his new pickup in a shopping center parking lot near Loop 1604 and Culebra Road.

Police said at some point, the driver lost control of the truck and it smashed into the window of a Dollar Tree store, breaking the glass and knocking down several boxes.

No one was hurt in the crash. Police said they planned to run tests to determine if the driver was legally drunk.
