A 79-year-old woman received a rude awakening Tuesday morning when a truck crashed into her North Side house.

The driver told police he lost control of the truck, took out a street sign and crashed into the side of the home in the 900 block of Mount Serolod Drive off Blanco Road.

Police said the woman was not injured. The driver was taken by ambulance to the hospital for treatment, but was expected to recover.

Police do not believe speed or alcohol contributed to the crash, and the driver was not expected to face charges.
