CLEVELAND, Ohio — A Cleveland family is homeless after a pick-up truck crashed into their house early Sunday.

Police said the white truck was traveling south on East 156th Street when it slammed into the home on Alonzo Avenue around 9 a.m.

The family renting the house said they can no longer live there because of the gaping hole and because the pick-up knocked out gas and power.

No one was in the room at the time the truck hit.

“I just felt the house shaking,” said Tremayne Chandler, who lives in the home. “I heard a loud boom, so I jumped up and I kind of panicked and did not know what was going on. I ran downstairs to see what was going on, and I looked in my daughter’s room, and there’s a white pick-up truck (in it).”

The driver of the truck was unconscious when police arrived and was taken to Metrohealth Medical Center. Cleveland police are still investigating the exact cause of the accident.
