Truck crashes into house, man charged with drunken driving

FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A man accused of driving drunk barreled his pickup truck into a house in Falmouth early Sunday morning, police said.

The 36-year-old man was speeding and under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into the front right corner of the home shortly after 1:30 a.m., Falmouth officials said.

Neither the driver nor a person who was in the house were injured. No one else was in the truck.

Police filed charges of operating under the influence of alcohol, speeding and negligent operation of a motor vehicle against the man, whose name hasn't been released.

The local building inspector reviewed the damage and determined the resident could stay in the house, fire department officials said.
