Pickup crashes into home on Seventh Street

TERRE HAUTE — Terry Miller was asleep early Sunday morning when he received an unexpected — and unwelcome — wake-up call.

“I heard a crash and then my house shook,” he said. A pickup truck crashed into his front porch, damaging brickwork and rails.

He’s concerned the crash may have damaged the home’s foundation as well, and he plans to have an engineer check it.

Miller, owner of Moore Photography, lives at 814 S. Seventh St.

The driver, Matthew R. McAdow, 32, of Terre Haute, was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. His blood alcohol content was 0.22 percent, Terre Haute Police said.

McAdow’s vehicle also hit a car parked along Seventh Street and damaged the vehicle’s front end. McAdow complained of pain and was taken to Union Hospital before he was taken to the jail. The incident happened about 5 a.m.

He was expected to be released from jail Sunday evening.
