A pickup truck crashed into a house in the City of Ithaca, injuring the driver, damaging his car and displacing one of the property’s residents early Saturday, according to the Ithaca Fire Department.

The driver of a Ford truck did not properly complete a turn from Hudson Street onto Aurora Street, causing him to collide into a house at 142 South Aurora St., according to a press release from the IFD.

The driver was taken to Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, P.A. to be treated for his injuries. The City of Ithaca’s Building Department was also called to the scene — along with the property owner’s maintenance team — to repair a wall that had been damaged by the collision, according to the press release.

As of Monday, there had been no further developments in the investigation into the incident, according to Lt. Tommy Basher Jr., public information officer for the IFD.
