Truck crashes into North Austin building (Julie Karam/KXAN)

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Fire crews responded to a blaze in North Austin early Tuesday morning after a pickup truck hit a building. The truck ran into the US Farathane Corp. building at 810 West Howard Lane, which is right off Interstate 35. While the truck erupted in flames following the crash, it did not spread to the building.

Crews managed to put out the fire, and the building was evacuated. People have since been allowed to return. Meanwhile, the driver of the truck was taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge without life-threatening injuries. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
