People sleeping at a South Bay apartment complex got a rude awakening early Tuesday morning after a driver reportedly fell asleep at the wheel and slammed his truck into the side of the building right next to PG&E gas meters.
Police said at about 3:40 a.m., a pickup truck traveling northbound on Camden Avenue went off the road, crashing into three parked cars before hitting the side of an apartment complex.
The building is located on the corner of Camden Avenue and Donna in the Cambrian area of San Jose.
The collision left a dent in this building right near the gas meters. The proximity to the gas meters was initially a concern because emergency crews thought there was a rupture.
PG&E crews came out to inspect the gas line and determined there was no leak in the building.
No one was injured inside the apartment, but the owners of the parked cars weren't happy to find the damage done to their vehicles.
Police said the driver of the truck who caused the damage told them he fell asleep at the wheel. He was not arrested.
The truck was towed away shortly before 5:30 a.m. Crews were still on scene cleaning up some of the debris left behind by the crash.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
