— Tenants in a Raleigh building say it sounded like a bomb went off, but instead a man had crashed through the front of the building in his truck.

Police say 73-year-old David Dexter Hilliard of Cary may have suffered a heart attack, and accidently hit the gas, sending his truck into the offices of Interact, an organization which helps women who have faced violence.

Hilliard is currently at Rex Hospital. Police say he was visiting his wife at a nursing home next door when the accident happened.
