When police arrived, they discovered the home on Church Hill Road had been struck by a Ford F-350.

The truck was traveling west on Church Hill Road when it lost control and struck the home, police said.

According to officials, the truck drove through the the northwest corner of the home, destroying both exterior walls before striking and hitting a stone and concrete wall. The truck went on to pass through the concrete wall to hit homeowner's vehicle before finally coming to rest in the driveway.
