EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A historic house on Riverside Drive was damaged again after a second crash there in less than a week.
According to EPD, this second crash happened around 6 a.m. Wednesday.
Police say a Ford Expedition was coming around the curve on Riverside when it missed the road and went into the yard of the house and crashed into the truck from Saturday’s crash.
Police tell 14 News the driver claimed he was looking down and when he looked up he was driving through the front yard of the house. Police do not believe the driver was impaired.
Officials confirm there is additional structural damage to the house after this second crash, but no one was seriously hurt.
“I think the way the path it was going, it looked to me and several others that the truck was going to hit right in this porch area so I’m sure it would’ve hit this house,” said Kay Cox, who owns the home next door.
Cox tells 14 News she previously owned the home, but sold it about six months ago.
