Description

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Two Albany homes are badly damaged after the driver of a truck plowed into one, before hitting another, and then bursting into flames Thursday night.

The crash happened on Queens Road.

Neighbors tell WALB, the driver was headed eastbound, towards Slappey Boulevard, when he lost control of his truck and it went through a yard and hit a home, then hit the home next to it. When neighbors heard the commotion, they said they ran to the home and pulled the driver out, just before the truck, and the home, caught fire.

”When I got to the truck, he was completely unconscious. I opened the door, by then, the truck was already in flames,” a neighbor and good samaritan told WALB. “The neighbor down the street helped me pull him out of the truck. We drug him out to the yard and then I went back up to the house banging on the doors trying to see if anyone was home.”

WALB is told people were in the first home that was hit, but they weren’t injured. No one was in the second home, which caught fire. That home is now uninhabitable.

We’re working to learn the identity and the condition of the driver.
