      Driver crashes into living room, leaves

      At about 3:15 a.m. Wednesday a truck ran into the living room of the home in the 4700-block of Henwick Lane.

      The Highway Patrol is looking for what neighbors say was a red truck after it crashed into a Cole County home and then took off.

      At about 3:15 a.m. Wednesday the truck ran into the living room of the home in the 4700-block of Henwick Lane.

      The driver then reversed out of the house and fled the scene.

      Highway Patrol troopers said the house is located on a curve and suffered substantial damage from the crash.

      A neighbor told authorities she saw what she thought was a red truck driving away shortly after the crash.

      No one inside the home was hurt.

      Troopers said the vehicle that hit the house probably has damage to the front end but most likely only cosmetic damage since the driver was able to leave.
