MIDLAND - DPS troopers didn't go very far to find one wreck in the Tall City Sunday afternoon.

A driver crashed right across from their Midland office just off Loop 250 and I-20.

The driver of a black coupe told troopers he looked down just for a second to grab his cell phone when the wreck happened.

Troopers say they still don't know why he didn't put on the breaks though.

The driver went through a fence, then a field, before he slammed his car into a warehouse.

The driver was ticketed for failure to drive in a single lane.
