Four people were injured after a truck crashed into a Pasco home Thursday afternoon.

Pasco Fire Rescue responded to the home on Normandy Boulevard in Holiday after receiving a call at 2:30 p.m.





According to officials, the crash caused about $20,000 of damage to the home and another truck, who ran a stop sign, is to blame for the crash.

"We just heard like a big bang. We just jumped up," Priscilla Hardy said.

Priscilla and her 8-year-old granddaughter were in the home when the crash happened.

"I went and looked, you know, around the hallway and her room door was open and you just see the truck inside the room -inside the window," Priscilla Hardy said.

No one inside the home was injured.

"This is dangerous though. You see accidents happen all the time. They speed. They don't care…run the stop sign. I don't even let her ride her bike on the street because you can turn your back and she hit," Priscilla Hardy said.

According to FHP, the driver of the Dodge ran a stop sign, slamming into a black Toyota, driven by an off-duty Pasco County Sheriff's Deputy, causing both to hit the house.

The deputy is expected to be okay. The driver of the Dodge and his passenger were taken to the hospital as well.

The driver of the Dodge was given a ticket for running a stop sign, according to FHP.

"This street here. This is a bad street,"Johnel Jones, who lives in the home, said.
