None hurt af­ter truck drives into Eureka house

Times Standard (Eureka) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Ruth Sch­nei­der rschnei­der@times-stan­dard.com Con­tact re­porter Ruth Sch­nei­der at 707-441-0520.

No­body was in­jured when a Ford pickup truck drove into the of­fice space of a home around 2 p.m. on Monday near the in­ter­sec­tion of Car­son and F streets.

One home­owner, a man, was home at the time, said Hum­boldt Bay Fire spokesper­son Amy Con­lin on Monday af­ter­noon. His spouse came home shortly there­after.

“The struc­ture was still sound when they took the truck out,” said Con­lin. “They were able to iso­late the front por­tion of that room. The home­own­ers will be able to stay in the house.”

The value of the dam­age is un­known at this point, she said.

The Eureka Po­lice Depart­ment was on the scene and per­formed a breath­a­lyzer on the driver of the pickup.

“They did end up let­ting him leave,” said Con­lin, not­ing that if he blew higher than the le­gal limit that would not be the case.

Nei­ther the driver nor the oc­cu­pants of the home have been iden­ti­fied.

EPD did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment ahead of the pub­lish­ing dead­line.
