2 Injured After Truck Crashes Into Home

2 Injured After Truck Crashes Into Home A two-vehicle accident caused a flatbed truck to crash into a home in Salem County on Monday afternoon.

Video from Chopper 3 shows the flatbed truck that slammed through the front porch and hit a portion of the outside wall of the home in Pilesgrove.

“I thought a bomb blew up outside. As a matter of fact I called 911 I said there was an explosion,” said Stephen Sulvetta, whose home was struck.

Officials say the two vehicles collided just before 3 p.m. on Lincoln Road. The flatbed truck then crossed a large field and ended up crashing into the home.

The elderly couple who lives in the house were not harmed. They were in the back of the home at the time of the crash.

Stephen’s son, John Sulvetta, spent 37 years as a Philadelphia police officer. In that time he doesn’t remember ever responding to a vehicle into a building.

But that day finally arrived, right into his own formal living room.

“My sister called me. She said a tractor-trailer is in the front of mommy and daddy’s house,” said John.

“I didn’t know if my father was OK for about 15 minutes,” said Donna Sulvetta-Student, the couple’s daughter.

The driver of the flatbed truck was rushed to the hospital, along with a passenger in the car.

Their injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.

The truck traveled nearly 300 yards before striking the home and a room, that, ironically, Stephen says he hardly ever went in.

“I had sofas and chairs and tables in there that I never sat my backside on,” said Stephen.

The house has been deemed structurally unsafe.

State police are investigating the cause of the crash.
