SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - A home in Sunrise has been deemed unsafe after a driver crashed their vehicle into it.
A truck crashed into the house along 61st Avenue and 18th Court, Tuesday morning.
7News cameras captured a large hole in the side of the home.
The driver sustained minor injuries.
No one was inside at the time of the crash.
“We heard the skid marks from the street, and then we heard a lot of noise like, ‘boom boom, boom.’ Next thing we heard was an explosion, and we felt the house rock,” said homeowner Joe Browne.
Browne said that he and his wife had ran outside to see what happened. A trucker in a Toyota Tundra plowed through the backyard and into the home, leaving the driver dazed.
Inspectors have since deemed the house unsafe until repairs are made.
Browne said all of the mess can be fixed. He’s just glad that him and his wife weren’t hurt.
The driver remained on the scene and cooperated with police.
