FAYETTE COUNTY -

A gaping hole in the side of a house after a man plowed his Dodge pickup truck in reverse, slamming into the house.

A man tried to get his truck up the hilly road of Wolfe Lane lot 2 off of Route 61 and instead of hitting his breaks he stepped on the gas, went in reverse down the hill and slammed his car through the living room of another man's home.

The accident happened around 3:00pm Wednesday afternoon.

The home owner was sitting on the couch when the truck's bed charged through the wall behind him and hit the couch, thus shooting him off of his feet into the kitchen.

A few friends of the man helped to clean up the debris and said the man was taken to Plateau Medical center and was possibly suffering from a broken leg.
