Two Hurt When Pickup Slams Into Texas Apartment Building

HOUSTON (November 23, 2012)--Two people were recovering Friday in a Houston hospital after a pickup truck veered off a Houston freeway and slammed into their apartment building.

The driver of the truck says someone in another vehicle was chasing him Friday morning along Interstate 45 and he lost control.

His truck smashed through a wrought-iron fence, and then hit some decorative boulders, pushing them into the corner apartment.

Neighbors said the two people inside the apartment were asleep on a couch at the time of the crash.

The truck driver was taken into police custody.
