Truck plows into home in Elkhart


A pick-up truck plowed right into a home in the 1100 block of North Michigan Street in Elkhart.

This all happened around 7:45 p.m. Friday.

Crews finally removed the truck at 9:00 p.m..

We're told the driver -- an elderly man -- must have been going fast because the entire truck wound up in the house.

There's no word on his injuries but police say he was taken to the hospital.

There was nobody inside at the time.

However, the home was just recently renovated.

In fact it was completed Friday and a tennant was supposed to move in soon.

Police are trying to find out how the driver lost control and ended up hitting the house.
