GROVER BEACH, Calif. - Police and firefighters responded to a home at The Pike and Lynne Street in Grover Beach Saturday night after a truck crashed through one of its walls.

It happened around 9:45 p.m. Five Cities Fire Authority fire chief Steve Lieberman said the truck crashed through a load-bearing wall to one of the bedrooms.

Three people were home at the time of the crash, but fortunately, none were in the bedroom.

The driver was the only person in the truck. Lieberman said the crash is being investigated as a possible DUI, however, police have not released their findings.

Firefighters stayed at the scene to build a FEMA approved brace for the compromised wall. They said a Grover Beach building inspector also responded to the home to affirm their plans. The brace will help make sure the building's structure is not compromised while the homeowners wait for the hole to be fixed.

The inspector was also able to allow firefighters to keep the family in the home while they worked.

No injuries were reported during this incident.
