A truck driver is dead after driving through Lufkin’s AutoZone on Timberland Drive early Wednesday, according to city of Lufkin communications director Jessica Pebsworth.

The 18-wheeler hauling bananas was southbound around 4:25 a.m. when 62-year-old Brian Golliday of St. Louis, Missouri, left the road at the Tulane intersection and traveled several hundred yards before entering and exiting the AutoZone building, according to Pebsworth.

She said Golliday's family told officers that he had a history of heart problems. An autopsy has been ordered.

The truck came to a stop in the Kiwanis Park tree line behind a neighboring office building, she said.

The driver was dead when officers and firefighters arrived. It took firefighters 30 minutes to remove the driver from the cab of the truck.

The truck also tore down power lines after leaving the road. Initially, 900 homes were without power but that number was down to 26 by of 6 a.m, Pebsworth said.

Additionally, two vehicles in the AutoZone parking lot were damaged in the accident.
