Truck crashes into flooring business on Perryville Road


A scary moment for a flooring company when a truck drives into the building.

It happened around 3 p.m. on the 4000 block of North Perryville Road. Loves Park Police Department says the driver's truck had mechanical problems, stalled out, then kept rolling over the median and into a parking lot. The driver was able to get out of the truck before it crashed into Canyon Flooring. The business owner described what he saw when it happened.

"I thought the ceiling fell in and we heard a big bang," Canyon Flooring owner Scott Yapp said. "I came out while I was just right here and I saw this truck inside the show room, and I ran outside and nobody was in the truck." 

Yapp says the driver had a sprained ankle and didn't go to the hospital. He and one other employee were the only ones in the store at the time. They were not hurt.
