    An angry man rammed his pickup truck through an Oklahoma hotel lobby and into the front desk as two women dove for safety at the last second, according to video obtained by NBC News.

    The video, provided to NBC News by the hotel’s manager, shows the driver of the 2006 Sierra GMC talking with a police officer outside the hotel entrance. It then shows him slam the truck into drive and race through the front entrance and into the front desk.
