DALLAS – A truck was intentionally crashed into a television station in Dallas on Wednesday morning, according to a report.

KXAS-TV, the NBC station in Dallas, reported that the truck crashed into the studios of KDFW-TV, Fox 4.

According to the report, anchors on the Fox 4 morning show said that the crash was intentional and the driver was in custody.
