Truck crashes into residence
A 1979 Ford F-250 operated by Giovonia D. Coleman Jr., 21, of Westwood Court, Danville, crashed into a residence at 631 Apache Trail about 5:24 a.m. today.
The truck penetrated the masonry wall of the unoccupied garage area of the home, rupturing the natural gas meter. The house was evacuated while the Danville Fire Department shut off the gas line and contacted Atmos energy. There were no injuries in the accident.
Coleman was charged with driving under the influence and taken to the Boyle County Detention Center. Investigation indicates that alcohol and excessive speed were the contributing factors for the collision, police said.
