Deputies say truck crashes into home; three injured
Three people from Lewis County were flown to a local hospital after a truck crashed into their home.
Deputies with the Lewis County Sheriff department tell 13News John Templeton, 52, of Foster, lost control of his Chevy Silverado Tuesday evening crashing it into the home of Doug Hyrne.
Hyrne, a friend and a child were in the home at the time of the crash. Two of them were thrown onto the front porch when the truck hit the home. The impact of the truck also caused the front part of the home to cave, leaving them trapped for about 30 minutes.
Their injuries were serious, but not life-threatening and all three were flown to a local hospital. Templeton was taken to Meadowview Regional Medical Center in Maysville.
Deputies took a data recorder from the Templeton's truck and are sending it to be analyzed.
