LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A truck crashed into the Gator 99.5 radio and offices last night, according to the Gator 99.5 website.

Mike Soileau says that a person driving a motor home on a feeder road near Lakeshore Drive was towing a three-quarter ton pickup truck on Feb. 18. The truck apparently became loose from the motor home hitch and ran into the building.

The truck left the roadway and came through the parking lot entrance, hit the curb, hit the Gator 99.5 sign, and plowed into the building, Souileau says. Furniture and other belongings on the inside were damaged.

The truck hit the building where the business and HR manager’s office is located, says Soileau. The pipes were also damaged causing water to pour down the building’s hallway.

Soileau says no injuries have been reported. KPLC is on the scene.
