Potato truck runs through building in Carberry

The RCMP are looking into what caused a potato truck to plow through a building in Carberry.

Just before 7:30 yesterday morning, the Mounties were called out to The R.D. Ramsey Garage where they found the truck had punched clean through both sides of the building.

The driver of the truck was taken to hospital, there is no word on his condition. No one else was hurt.

The building he hit suffered extensive damage, extending even up to the roof.  There is yet no word on a dollar value attached to the destruction.
