Truck Plows into Picayune Tire and Service Building
This morning a truck plowed right through the front entrance of a tire shop in Picayune causing plenty of damage to the business.
Picayune Tire and Service employees tell News 25 their shop is usually a big hit, but not usually a target for trucks to ram through. Thanks to surveillance video, the shop was able to catch the whole incident on film.
A truck came right across the highway, cramming another truck into the front wall of the tire shop. The cameras show the crash happening at 4:45 a.m.
Employees at the shop tell News 25 the truck driver was drunk at the time of the incident. Employees say the driver is in jail after being taken to a local hospital for minor injuries. Bradley Tyree with Picayune Tire and Service said, “When I got here I was kind of in disbelief. I mean, it was crazy. Just rubble and chaos going on and people everywhere. People were stopping in the parking lot taking pictures with their phones, just everybody was asking questions. We didn’t have answers.”
Employees at Picayune Tire and Service say the gaping hole in the building didn’t stop the shop from being just as busy as ever all day long.
