RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Two people were hospitalized Thursday morning after a dump truck crashed into a Russellville home.

According to the Franklin County EMA Mary Glass, the crash occurred around 7 a.m. Residents who were inside the home at the time of the crash were injured and transported to a hospital. It has not yet been determined if the truck driver will be charged.

Mary Glass said a dump truck ran into a home on County Road 75 completely destroying it. Glass says first responders located the residents who were taken to the hospital. She added the victims were responsive as they left the home. Crews then turned off the power and gas because there was a gas leak.
