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.
