Law enforcement has initiated a man hunt for a truck driver that deliberately crashed into a store in northwest Oklahoma City on Wednesday morning, as reported by koco.com.
According to investigators, the crash was most likely no accident. They have confirmed that there is plenty of evidence suggesting that the driver meant to plough into the store to gain access into it, probably in order to rob the store. The accident site has been identified as 4700 block of Northwest 23rd Street. The store has been described in reports as “Cash America Pawn”. Supposedly, the security system in place at the store triggered an alarm which notified police that responded to the accident.

There is no video footage captured of the driver himself, he did not enter the store after the crash.
