People in an Albany home had a scare when a truck slammed into the back of their home on Friday.

It happened just after 12:30 p.m. at Southeast Geary Street and 15th Avenue, according to Albany Police.

The crash caused the truck to jump a curb and into the corner of a house at the intersection.

Johnson’s truck hit the corner of the house, knocking a hole into the bedroom.

No one was hurt in the crash.

Meyer was cited for making an illegal U-turn, according to police.
