Chesapeake, Va. (WTKR)- A truck hit a home in the Western Branch section of Chesapeake Thursday morning.
The call came in ay 6:13 a.m. for the crash on Dunedin Drive.
Chesapeake Police say a GMC truck was traveling at a high rate of speed when it hit the corner of the house.
The truck then struck a fence and then came to a rest after smashing into a tree at the rear of the property.
Homeowner Calvin Edwards was on his way to work when Chesapeake Police called him.
“Wow. I mean look where the house is located, you would never think that something like that could happen, but I guess anything can happen,” Edwards told NewsChannel 3’s Todd Corillo.
The driver of the truck, a 72-year-old man, sustained non life-threatening injuries and appears to have suffered from a medical emergency, according to police.
He was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. His wife tells NewsChannel 3 he should be okay.
Edwards was preparing to sell the house prior to the crash and his family had already moved out, so no one was home at the time.
