SPRINGFIELD, MA – A surprise for a Springfield, Massachusetts family after a truck comes crashing through their house.

Not only did the accident leave a gaping hole in the house, it left a hole in the homeowners’ hearts. Their newly adopted dog was killed in the crash.

No one else was home at the time.

Police say the 85-year-old driver of the truck claims that his accelerator was stuck and he couldn’t stop.
