JUPITER, Fla. — A white pickup truck crashed into a house Monday night in the Shores subdivision off Central Boulevard, sending the male driver to a local hospital, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and Jupiter police said.

PBFR crews from Battalions 1 and 9 responded to the crash in the 18300 block of Flagship Circle off Central Boulevard at 6:33 p.m.

A Jupiter police spokesman said the pickup was headed east on Long Shore Boulevard at the intersection with Flagship before crashing into the house.

The car had crashed "completely inside" the residence, according to PBFR.

Firefighters utilized their specialized equipment to stabilize the house and rescue the trapped occupant. One patient was transported to a local hospital in an unreported condition. The Jupiter spokesperson said the injuries appeared to be minor.

PBFR posted video of the crash on Twitter and Facebook. In the video, the truck is seen inside the one-story home with heavy damage.

On Sunday night, a car crashed into a home on Catherine Drive in Delray Beach.

After the 7 p.m. crash, Delray Beach Fire Rescue said firefighters stayed on the scene and covered the opening with plywood for the family of four's house.

Delray Beach police arrested the man on charges of driving under the influence and driving without a license.
