Pickup truck crashes into house after driver loses control

A pickup truck destroyed the front porch of a residence in Centralia Saturday afternoon after the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed into it, according to Centralia police. The motorist, thought to be in his late 20s or early 30s, suffered a medical emergency prior to crashing into the house, Sgt. Kurt Reichert said. The man was taken to Providence Centralia Hospital, although it wasn’t clear if he was taken to the hospital for injuries related to the crash, or for the pre-existing medical condition, he said. His passenger, also a man, was not injured, Reichert said. About 1 p.m., the man was westbound on Main Street when he crashed into a house in the 1100 block of West Main Street. Reichert thought the pickup truck was traveling at 20-25 miles per hour when it hit the residence, destroying the front porch and a corner of the house.
