(CBS) DALLAS - The Sleep Experts mattress store near the Central Expressway in Dallas was not designed to be a drive-thru operation, but that's what it turned into Monday night when a drowsy driver fell asleep at the wheel and crashed her new pickup truck through the wall, police said, according to CBS DFW.

The station reported that, according to police, the driver of the pickup had just gotten off from a 13-hour work shift when she dozed off during the ride home. Her truck ended up deep inside the mattress store, and firefighters had to call the power company to disconnect the electricity before the vehicle could be pulled out.

The woman was not hurt.

There was no immediate dollar estimate on the damage to the building, and no word on whether the woman might face charges.
