No one was seriously hurt after a dump truck crashed into a home. The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department says that at about 11 a.m. Tuesday, deputies were called to 10782 E County Road 450 N after a single-axle dump truck crashed into the side of a 100-year-old farm house.

Authorities say the dump truck, owned by Edge Construction, ran off the roadway and into the house, likely causing significant damage to the foundation of the home. Columbus Township Fire and Clifford Fire Departments are attempting to stabilize the home’s foundation.

The driver of the dump truck, 27-year-old Geoffrey Jones, received minor injuries. No one inside the house was hurt.

The investigation is ongoing.
