A large cement-type truck crashed into a home in Tallahassee.

It happened on Ridge Road around 6 last night.

We're told the crash happened at the bedroom of one of the children who lives there, but, not one was in the room at the time.

The next door neighbor, Luvina Lynn, says the truck first came through her yard, crashed into the front of her car, then went into the neighbor's home.

Lynn says, "I heard something say boom, bam. I came to the door. I didn't see my car, and I looked; all I could see was the back of that red asphalt truck and the front of it was high-way in those other people's house. And I said, Lord, have mercy."

The house has been deemed unsafe... a note on the door today says, "enter at your own risk."

No word from authorities if the truck driver was charged or injured.
