Driver Plows Truck Through House, Charged with DUI

downloadA woman has been arrested and expected to face the charge of DUI after her truck plowed through a house in Elizabeth Township.

Police indicated the woman in her 50’s, whose name has not been released, appeared to be intoxicated and will face likely charges of driving while intoxicated.

According to Elizabeth Township Fire Department Chief Peter Hough Jr., the truck crashed so far into the house and caused enough damage that rescuing the driver could have brought the second story of the structure down on top of the firemen sent to the scene.

The truck door could not be opened until firefighters installed supports to keep the house from falling.  The woman was finally freed from her vehicle and treated for minor cuts and bruises.

The house on Industry Road, according to neighbors, is used as a “man cave” to hold hunting trophies and guns of the homeowner.  The house was unoccupied at the time of the crash.  The same house has also been hit previously several years ago, while a neighboring building had been hit previously on the same stretch of road in March.
