A driverless pickup towing a backhoe crashed into the Mannford NAPA Auto Parts Store early Saturday afternoon.

An officer at the scene said the driver parked the truck on a hill as he ate lunch at O.J.'s restaurant. The truck apparently slipped out of gear and rolled downhill. It knocked over an empty propane tank before hitting the break room of the auto parts store.

Fortunately, no one was in the break room at the time, and no one was injured.

Police say no citations were issued.
