Damaged House

DAMAGED HOUSE – Maria Gloria Hernandez was inside her Grant Street home Monday afternoon when she heard a loud crash. She ran outside and found that a pickup truck had crashed into the side of her house. The driver of the truck, Petra Maldonado of Levelland, was not hurt but Mrs. Hernandez suffered a minor injury when she slipped and fell. She declined treatment at the scene. Maldonado was westbound on Grant and had turned north on Avenue P. She may have stepped on the gas instead of the brake, according to police. Her Chevrolet pickup jumped the curb and struck the west side of the house. The impact destroyed an air conditioner and knocked in the wall of a bedroom. It knocked over some furniture and moved a bed in the room. No one was inside the room at the time. Maldonado was given a ticket for failure to control speed and no driver’s license. Mrs. Hernandez rents the home. (Staff Photo)
