The presenters who continued on the air through the 7 am newscast, despite the accident, say no one was hurt. The truck hit an unoccupied administrative side of the building before the office workers arrived for the day.
A statement from KDFW says & # 39; a man crashed a truck on the side of our building this morning & # 39; and he jumped and started to rant.
The presenter and reporter Brandon Todd, who witnessed the man walking out of the station before being arrested, said the man was screaming about "high treason," and that he believed he had been clearly wronged and that someone was trying to kill him.
"It's not very clear what his message was," according to Todd.
The man started crying when the police put him in custody, Todd said.
According to the police, the unidentified suspect was annoyed by a gunfight involving an officer that occurred elsewhere.

The man was taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation. He faces charges for criminal damages arising from the incident.
