PHOENIX – A man who went through the wall of a Phoenix home with his truck is dead.

Capt. Jonathan Jacobs, with the Phoenix Fire Department, tells 3TV a truck driven by a male went through a wall and then slammed into a home near 35th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak.

Rescue crews say the driver was dead at the scene and his body would have to be extricated from the truck. One witness told police the man was slumped over the steering wheel before he went through the first wall.

Nobody was home at the time of the crash. It is still unclear what caused the man to lose control of the truck or how he died.
