Workers in a nearby building said the impact was so loud they could hear it up on the 14th floor.

"My coworker said that it sounded like a bomb. He wasn't sure what it was, but the impact and the noise, he thought a bomb went off."

Police have detained two people that were in the suspect vehicle.

Thankfully, the driver of the truck was not seriously injured and neither was the other driver in the first incident at Lombard and Laguna.
