Truck slams into Phx home

PHOENIX - A truck slammed into a house and burst into flames.

The crash happened near 7th Avenue and Missouri. Phoenix Police and Fire responded to the scene.

A black Chevy Silverado pick-up truck plowed through a brick barrier and into a brick house right next door the 3TV newsroom. The house and pick-up caught on fire shortly after the crash and the driver tried to flee the scene.

Sgt. Frank Valenzuela tells 3TV, "The suspect was apprehended in the 500 W. block of San Juan."

Police do not know yet if it involved a road rage incident or if alcohol could have been a factor. Luckily nobody was in the home the truck crashed into.
