A customer at a US cellular store says she's lucky to be alive. And after you see this video - you'll probably agree.

April drake was paying her bill inside the store in Durant, Oklahoma on Saturday when a pickup truck plowed through the store.

The truck knocked a hole in the wall and ended up 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?’," Drake said.

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-thousand dollars.

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