KITCHENER – A pickup truck collided into the side of a house in Kitchener on Friday morning after a two-vehicle crash.
It happened at the intersection of Westmount Road and Queen's Boulevard at around 8:30 a.m.
Police say the truck was heading south on Westmound when a sedan heading the other way turned left in front of the truck.
The sedan had serious damage to its passenger side and roof and ended up on the front lawn of a house.
Emergency services were on scene. One driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
A family was inside the home that the pickup truck crashed into, but no one was injured. They're out of the home but police say they should be allowed back in soon.
One lane was blocked and traffic was backed up for some time while officials were on scene.
Police say that failing to yield is believed to be the cause of the crash and say charges are pending.
The residence suffered serious structural damage, with costs being pegged between $100,000 and $200,000.
