A sergeant with the Evansville Police Department says a pick up ran a red light on Vann. The truck then hit a car driving on Lincoln, which slid into another car.

We’re told the truck tapped a home, taking down bushes and a part of a fence too.

“I came down, the wife was in the kitchen, she said ‘what was that?’. I said ‘somebody just hit the front of the house.' and my boy came up from downstairs and he said ‘I just heard a loud crash and the house shook’," said Todd Kietzen, the homeowner.

The homeowner feels very lucky the truck wasn’t going any faster or the damage could’ve been much worse.

The passenger in the truck was taken to the hospital. No word on their condition.
