TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Police said no one was hurt Wednesday when a vehicle hit a Twin Falls home.

The Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office said around 1 p.m., a truck ran into a house after failing to yield to a vehicle in front of them.

The incident happened near Grandview Drive South on Highway 74.

The driver of the truck did not slow down for the car in front of him and swerved left, hitting the home.

Deputy Matthew White said the structure of the house should be OK and no one was injured in the accident.

"As an Idaho driver, you should be aware of what's going on around you at all times, if you can. We understand things happen," he continued, "But, just be aware of all the other vehicles around you, as well as what you're doing and check three times before you make a move, whether to pass or to turn."

He went on to say that it didn't seem like the driver slowed down, as there were no signs of skid marks.

"Especially in the winter months, be more aware of speed. Drive safe, drive to arrive and make sure you get to where you’re going," he urged.
