PHOENIX -- A child was injured when a Qwest utility truck crashed into a house near 27th Avenue and Bethany Home Road in Phoenix Tuesday morning.

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, the driver lost control of the truck and the vehicle crashed through a block wall fence before slamming into the front of a home on San Miguel Road at approximately 10 a.m.

A woman and her three children, ages 4, 2 and 10 months, were inside the home at the time of the crash.

The 4-year-old girl was transported to a local hospital after a door landed on her. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The driver was also taken to a hospital but is expected to be OK.

Police have not determined what caused the driver to lose control of the truck but believe it may have been some sort of medical issue.

According to Michelle Miller with the Phoenix Fire Department, firefighters worked to shore up the house so it wouldn't continue to collapse.
