MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A man was taken away on a stretcher Saturday morning after he crashed his white pickup truck straight into a cricket wireless building, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said.

The accident happened around 5:30 a.m. at 8900 Southwest 40th Street.

A woman next door said the crash sounded like a bomb.

"I'm sure there was someone inside so I went ahead and called police," she said.

Brief surveillance video from inside the store shows the lights of the truck through the glass and the quick impact. Dust went flying in the air.

If you look closely at the video, you can see a man moving quickly out of the way, just moments before the truck jumped the curb.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue transported the driver to West-End Trauma Center with traumatic injuries.
