WESTFIELD — Officials say a pickup truck narrowly missed hitting a man when it crashed into a suburban Indianapolis home.

The crash happened late Sunday in a Westfield subdivision, with the truck's cab and front wheels going through a wall of the wood-frame house.

The Westfield Fire Department says a man living in the house had just sat down on a living room couch when the truck slammed through the wall. The man, his wife and their child were not hurt.

Fire officials say paramedics treated the driver and he didn't need hospitalization.

Information on what might have caused the crash wasn't immediately released.
