Driver injured after truck crashes into storefront at River Oaks Shopping Center

The truck was on its side and appeared to have struck the display in the front of the store.

HOUSTON — A man was taken to an area hospital Wednesday after a crash at the River Oaks Shopping Center.

Police said the man was driving a truck when it crashed into the Kartell store, which is on the south side of West Gray Street, near Shepherd Drive. The store is next to Landmark's River Oaks Theatre.

The truck was on its side and appeared to have struck the display in the front of the store.

It also appears that the truck struck and broke a fire hydrant, causing a significant water leak in the area.

It's not clear what led up to the crash or how bad the driver was injured.

Kenneth Peyton said he was at a nearby Starbucks when he saw the incident unfold.

Peyton said he saw the truck hit another vehicle before making a U-turn and then crashing into the storefront.

"It looked like something out of a movie," Kenneth Peyton said. "It did not look real at all."
