Minivan hits southeast Houston business

Surveillance video shows van plowing into building

HOUSTON - Police were working to figure out why a man crashed into a southeast Houston business early Thursday.

His van was found lodged in the "A-Plus Furniture" store on Telephone Road near Winfree Drive at 2:15 a.m.

The driver was taken to a hospital with leg injuries, but he was expected to be OK.

The driver left behind an expensive cleanup for the store's owner.

Owner David Garcia showed KPRC Local 2 surveillance video of the crash.  It took just seconds for the van to do the damage, and the wheels were still spinning after impact.

Police said there was no obvious signs that the driver was intoxicated, but he will be tested at the hospital.

Authorities suspected the driver fell asleep at the wheel, missed a curve and hit the store.
