Vehicle crashes through house




A man was getting ready for work and his wife had just gotten out of bed when a noise that sounded like an explosion rocked their house east of Greenwood.

It was 3:30 a.m. when Steve and Mary Clarkson went outside and searched their dark yard with a flashlight. Steve Clarkson found tire tracks leading to a pickup truck, which had smashed through the southeast corner of their home in the 9100 block of Shelbyville Road.

Police are now trying to figure out who was driving the vehicle when it crashed into the house, Sheriff Doug Cox said. Two people who were injured in the crash said a friend was driving. When police found the man they identified as the driver, he didn’t appear to have any injuries and said he was not driving the truck, Cox said.
