Authorities in Texas say that a truck driver is expected to be okay after losing control of his vehicle in downtown Grand Prairie on Thursday morning.

The incident occurred around 10 a.m. on Thursday near the intersection of Main Street and Northeast 2nd Street in Grand Prairie.

Police say that the truck driver suffered a medical emergency and lost consciousness, causing his vehicle to veer off the road and strike several parked cars and light poles.

Security footage captured inside nearby business A&M Barber Studio shows how close the truck came to striking the building, which was open for business with customers and workers inside.

The truck driver was taken to the hospital for treatment and later released. No one else was injured.
