(KTEN/NBC) - A customer at a U.S. Cellular store in Oklahoma says she's lucky to be alive after a truck slammed into business.

April Drake said she was paying her bill inside the store in Durant, Okla., on Saturday when a pickup truck plowed through the front of the store.

The truck knocked a hole in the wall and ended up also driving into the Farmers Insurance agency next door.

"I just remember sticking my hand out to stop myself, or to stop it from hitting me, and I was thinking, ‘What was that?’" said Drake.

Drake said she believes her guardian angel was by her side at the time of the crash. No one was hurt.

Police said the driver will be ticketed for inattention to driving.

Construction crews say it'll be about three weeks until they can get the windows and wall replaced.

The estimated damage cost is about $100,000.

Police said the driver was not intoxicated and did not have any medical issues.
