HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police are gathering more information about how a truck spun out of control and landed on top of several vehicles in a family-owned car dealership in west Houston.

In a dramatic surveillance video obtained only by ABC13, a truck is seen spinning into the frame, going airborne over a gate, and rolling into the IDrive Auto Sales shop in the 2700 block of Highway 6.

The crash happened early Saturday morning, according to police.

Witnesses told Eyewitness News that the driver was thrown from the car.

The owners said at least 15 of their cars, a fence, and signage were damaged in the aftermath.

"I was devastated. I was really devastated. One day you go home, you relax. You get up suddenly, and you see all this happen. It's just unbelievable," owner Kasy Aburamadan said.

Aburamadan says his family has had this business for a few years and hopes insurance can cover the extensive damage.

The dealership tells ABC13 that police told them the driver reportedly survived the crash.

As of Saturday evening, law enforcement has not elaborated on whether alcohol was a factor or if the driver suffered a medical condition.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
