    Alameda County firefighters responding to the scene at House of Liquors in San Leandro had to reinforce the building with boards before they could get the truck out, Tuesday, July 22, 2014.

    Workers at an East Bay liquor store received a late-night surprise when a pickup truck crashed through the wall.

    Alameda County firefighters responding to the scene Tuesday night at House of Liquors, 1167 Manor Blvd., in San Leandro had to reinforce the building with boards before they could get the truck out.

    The truck’s driver went to the hospital, but only as a precaution. The 40-year-old San Leandro woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, police said.

    Police said the woman entered the store, purchased an item and returned to her pickup truck. She tried to drive away but ended up crashing into the
    business.

    House of Liquors was open at the time, but no one inside was hurt.

    Police have not identified the driver, pending the results of toxicology tests.
