    The back door of the DSW in Danbury is gone and there is a massive hole in its place after a truck crashed into the building on Tuesday afternoon, causing the wall to collapse.

    The man driving the tractor-trailer was actually heading for the delivery door at Staples in the Danbury Green, at 113 Mill Plain Road in Danbury, but decided to turn the rig around and back up to in, officials said.

    After hitting the building, the driver started pulling away, taking big chunks of cinderblock with him, police said. The truck driver then backed up, pushing what was left of the wall into the building.

    Police said the driver,  who has one year of experience, should have known he did not have enough room for the maneuver.

    Fortunately, no one was injured and DSW reopened after closing its doors for around two hours.

    Danbury's fire chief, the fire marshal and building inspector all responded.
