INDIANAPOLIS — Several people were taken to the hospital after police say an "out of control" truck slammed into two homes on Indianapolis' west side early Monday morning.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the scene on Patricia Street near 30th Street and Georgetown Road just before 2 a.m.

Police say a flatbed truck full of wood slats failed to negotiate a nearby turn and crashed through a home where a man was sleeping, tearing off the front of the house.

The truck then ran into the house next door where it stopped, embedded inside the home. Police say two adults and a teenage girl were sleeping inside at the time.

All four people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the person driving the truck and any possible passengers ran from the scene. The details surrounding the driver and the truck are still under investigation.

Anyone with information should contact IMPD or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
