CASTOR, LA (KSLA) - Castor High School is expected to open Monday after a truck plowed into the library early Wednesday morning.

A man driving a Ford F-150 passed out after choking on his morning coffee, lost control of the truck and it crashed into the building, according to state troopers.

No injuries were reported. Students and teachers at the campus on Front Street in Castor, La., were on break for the Thanksgiving holiday.

William Britt, superintendent for Bienville Parish Schools, says the library has been sectioned off and secured. No students will be allowed in.

Based on preliminary evaluations, the structure of the building is still sound following the crash, according to Britt.

Britt says engineers will be back at the school Monday to survey the damage.

The truck was heavily damaged, according to state police.
