SURPRISE, Ariz. -- A truck crashed into a Surprise home Tuesday night, injuring a man who was sitting in bed.

The truck slammed through the backyard wall before crashing into a bedroom of the home near 137th Avenue and Litchfield Road.

"All of a sudden, I just felt the impact and I went flying over across the room," Mauro Leal said. "It felt like it was the end of the world, too, because it felt like the house started shaking and everything."

Leal was released from the hospital Wednesday, and he said he still had some pain and a headache.

The driver was cited, but police are still investigating whether alcohol was a factor.
