WOODS CROSS — Police were trying to determine how a truck ended up crashed into a car dealership Friday morning.

About 5:40 a.m., officers were dispatched to Toyota Bountiful, 2380 S. Highway 89, on a report of a pickup truck crashing into the dealership.

When police arrived, the driver of the Dodge truck was gone, but had left her driver's license in the cab, said Woods Cross police officer Chris Hoffman.

Officers located the driver about a half mile from the dealership in her apartment. Hoffman said she had walked back to her apartment after the crash, and police transported her to Lakeview Hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.

As of Friday morning, police were still trying to determine how the truck, which was traveling north on Highway 89 before the accident, had crashed into the building.

They had not determined whether or not intoxication was a factor in the accident, or how much damage the crash had caused.
