ST STEPHENS, N.C. — Highway Patrol investigated after a pickup truck crashed into the basement of a Catawba County home.

Family members of the homeowners told NBC Charlotte no one was inside the house at the time.

"It's crazy how it happened," Tyreek Allred said. "This is terrible."

NBC Charlotte was working to learn the condition of the pickup driver who reportedly suffered a medical emergency before careening off the road and slamming into the home's basement.
