Woman narrowly escapes death from truck striking her house

LANCASTER (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman says she left her house only minutes before a truck drove through it, killing the driver.

Gayle Weaver told WXPI-TV she thinks it was a miracle that she wasn’t home at the time of the crash Tuesday evening.

Investigators say 77-year-old John Marcinek lost control and crashed into Weaver’s Manor Township home, leaving large holes on both sides.

Marcinek was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No one else was home at the time of the crash.

Fire officials have deemed Weaver’s home as structurally unsound. The home will be torn down.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
