Pickup truck turns Skyway house into drive-thru
SKYWAY – A mother and her two kids survived a scary crash Saturday morning when their pickup crashed into one side of their Skyway home, and out the other side. Sergeant John Hall with the King County Sheriff’s office said that the mom was backing out of their drive way when she may have hit something. The mom said that suddenly her pickup lurched forward, carshing into her house, and exiting the other side. Hall said that the truck came to rest perched on an embankment, over the road below.
The two kids, a 5-year-old and 10-year-old were transported to Valley General hospital, their condition unknown. King County Sheriff’s investigators are trying to determine the cause of the accident. Hall said that the mom may have accidentally hit the accelerator, causing the truck to crash into the house, which is in the 10800 block of Garden Place South.
