WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Police say a 20-year-old driver was taken to the hospital after crashing his pickup truck into a Wichita home Friday morning.

First responders were called at around 8 a.m. to a home in the 600 block of South Edwards, near Kellogg and Meridian. Witnesses said that the truck was northbound on Edwards and accelerated around some cars due to the lanes getting narrower. 

Sgt. Troy Nedbalek with the Wichita Police Department said the driver lost control on the wet road, drove through a couple of yards, went sideways and crashed into the bedroom area of the home. 

The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was taken by private vehicle to an area hospital. He suffered minor injuries when his head hit the windshield. 

Sgt. Nedbalek said the homeowner was in another room and was not hurt.
