JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A pickup truck crashed into a house in Jefferson Township Saturday night.

Officials said the truck went about 175 feet off the road before hitting the Charleston Road home about 9 p.m.

The family that lives in the house was not at home at the time of the accident.

Tammy Lantz, who lives in the home with her husband and children, said, “He said it was like a bomb went off on that side of the house. It's basically destroyed. The other side looks OK, but he said it looks like a bomb went off. There are walls down, there's a beam down, another beam was shifted. It's pretty ugly."

The driver of the truck was airlifted to an Ohio hospital. His condition has not been released.
