CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A man is lucky to be alive after losing control of his truck and running into a building on the corner of Peabody and Antelope on Tuesday.

The driver was traveling eastbound on I-37 when he lost control, hitting a sign and driving between two palm trees before crashing into the building. Workers inside the  building said they heard a loud boom when it happened.

"That's scary because I'm here sometimes, now and then," witness Ralph Martinez said. "You never know when something like this could happen."

The man received several citations, but luckily he was not critically injured in the accident. Police do not believe alcohol was a factor.
