A man is accused of drunk driving after he allegedly lost control of his truck and crashed into a health club in Vermilion Parish.

According to state police, Christopher Thibodeaux was driving west on LA 14 toward Kaplan around 3:30 a.m. when his truck veered off the left side of the highway and crashed into Olympus, a locally-owned health club in Nunez.

Thibodeaux was arrested by state police and booked into the Vermilion Parish jail on operating while intoxicated (OWI), careless operation and no seatbelt.

No injuries were reported.

A witness says no one was in the building during the crash. The health club will remain closed as the owners clean up the damage.
