Semi nearly strikes Lindon home after leaving roadway
LINDON, Utah — A semi-truck nearly hit a home in Utah County after leaving the roadway, stopping at the front porch.
The incident happened at 209 N. Westridge Lane in Lindon, just east of northbound Interstate 15, around 4 a.m. Sunday.
Police say the semi left the roadway towards the home, where it crashed into the front awning before coming to a stop.
The structure of the home was not damaged, other than the awning and some windows.
Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said the semi-truck also took out approximately 100-feet of a fence “that divides the highway from the city roadway.”
“The initial cause of the crash is still under investigation but the driver may have suffered a medical condition causing him to leave the roadway to the right,” read the press release from UHP.
The truck driver was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
No other injuries were reported.
