AUSTIN (KXAN) — A scary moment for people who were inside a State Farm office in South Austin Friday afternoon.

Austin police say a driver drove into the building just after 2 p.m. in the shopping center at 5800 W. Slaughter Ln., just west of South MoPac. Pictures show the vehicle went up a landscaped area and slammed into the front of the business.

It appears the vehicle went half-way into the office. No one was injured in the crash but the driver was arrested.
