Woman home ironing when truck crashes into house

MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Neighbors say a man drove his truck into the front of a home on Gulledge Street Tuesday night.

One person was inside the home at the time of the accident. The daughter of the woman home at the time, Stephanie Peagler, says her mother was ironing in the front room and had just opened the front door when the man drove through the window.

"We pulled up and the truck was in the window. You just don't imagine things like that happening until you actually see it for yourself," Peagler said. "It's very scary, and it was very scary for her as well."

Peagler says the man driving the truck was conscious before he was taken to a hospital.

The woman inside the home at the time had trouble breathing from all of the smoke inside the house. Peagler says she is OK now.
