    Truck Crashes Into Dunkin' Donuts

    A Dunkin' Donuts is closed after a tractor trailer crashed into it Monday afternoon.

    Around 2 p.m., police and firefighters in Chelsea, Massachusetts, were called to the Dunkin' Donuts at 276 Beacham St.

    The truck could be seen up against the store after the crash. It hit a parked car before striking the building.

    Deputy Fire Chief John Quatieri says the driver may have had a medical emergency and likely lost consciousness before the crash.

    He regained consciousness on the way to Massachusetts General Hospital.

    The impact of the crash tore a diesel fuel tank under the truck, spilling about 25 gallons of fuel.

    The building was evacuated as a precaution. A building inspector has ordered the store to remain closed until a more thorough inspection is made.

    For security guards who work in a small building a few feet away, all of this happened a bit too close for comfort.
