Truck Crashes Through Building
Pickup drives through State Farm Offices at Lake Otis and Tudor
ANCHORAGE - Around 10:15 Friday morning a U-Haul Ford F-150 pickup drove through the State Farm Offices at Lake Otis and Tudor.
The driver, 84-year-old Frances Barrios, was making a loop around the parking lot, attempting to park, but accidentally hit the gas pedal and went through the glass windows on the east side of the State Farm building, stopping at the far west end of the office.
A 67-year-old man, J.B. Bailey, was seated in the office and was struck by the bumper of the truck, sustaining a hurt shoulder, but he was not hospitalized. Barrios and her passenger were uninjured.
Barrios received a citation for careless driving.
The building was shored up by fire department personnel; damages to the building are estimated in the thousands.
