A truck is left heavily damaged after it slammed into a Tyler business early Sunday morning.

The accident happened in the 1500 block of W Grand Blvd. in Tyler around 1am Sunday. Witnesses tell KLTV 7 two trucks were racing on Grande when one of the trucks lost control, rolled several times and crashed into the Tyler Area Builder's Association building.
