Tuesday evening, a semi-truck crashed into a McDonald's at Interstate-20 and Great Southwest Parkway in Grand Prairie.

Two people, both restaurant employees, were injured. Authorities say neither suffered serious injuries. The driver of the truck, 43-year old Adrian Vasquez of Arlington, wasn't injured.

Video from a chopper on the scene showed one of those two being taken away from the scene on a stretcher. That person was transported to Methodist Medical Center in Dallas.

Witnesses say the driver was filling up at a nearby gas station when the truck lunged forward several dozen feet and crashed into the side of the restaurant.

Police say the truck was unoccupied at the time of the crash. The brakes either failed or were not set when it crashed, police say.
