MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Emergency crews were called to a Madison County home this morning after a truck ran into the home on Matts Way. The driver suffered minor injuries, and no one inside the home was hurt.

Investigators say the driver was traveling west on Danbridge Drive at a high rate of speed. They say he slammed on the brakes near the end of the road before entering a yard. That’s when he hit an embankment, went airborne then hit the home.

State troopers with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency are investigating the incident.
