HOWELL — A house was left uninhabitable after a pickup truck slammed into it Wednesday morning.
The truck hit the single-story house on Blue Bird Lane in the Windmill Club private community in Howell just before 7 a.m, according to Howell police Sgt. Peter Kuppler. A photo shows heavy damage to a wall that had to be completely torn down, exposing two rooms to the outdoors.
The truck appears to have crashed through a wrought iron fence. The vehicle suffered heavy damage including scratches to the engine compartment and a shattered windshield.
No one was home at the time of the crash. The township building department declared the house uninhabitable.
Why did the pickup hit the house?
The driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Kuppler said an investigation into the crash is ongoing and the circumstances of the crash are not known.
No charges have yet been filed.
