VANDERGRIFT, Pa. – A unoccupied pickup truck crashed into a house early Wednesday afternoon on Longfellow Street in Vandergrift. Police on scene said the vehicle appeared to be in neutral with the parking brake not fully engaged after it hit the house.

Rolling approximately 200′ down a slight grade, the vehicle jumped a couple steps on the front porch and stopped at the front door of the unoccupied house. Vandergrift #2 Fire department jacked up the front porch roof and installed temporary wooden supports to enable tow crews to remove the vehicle. It’s unknown if any charges will be file in the incident.
