Sgt. Scott West with the detachment said the driver and the residents of the home, located on the corner of 109 Avenue and Ninth Street, knew each other, though he could not divulge the nature of their relationship at this time. He said they are awaiting more information and he was not able to provide a motive for why the driver would deliberately crash the vehicle into the home.

Police have not yet laid formal charges against the driver of the semi-truck, who was discovered by emergency personnel in the cab of the truck, unresponsive and with injuries to his face. He is currently not in police custody, though he is known to police. An investigation into charges including possession of stolen property over $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and driving while prohibited is ongoing.
