Abandoned Truck Crashes Into House

Topeka police say they have made impressive gains in the four months since creating a violent crime unit after a spate of crimes earlier this year.
Police are searching for whoever abandoned a truck that rolled down a hill and into a Topeka home.
Topeka Police Lt. Jana Harden says the truck was empty when it hit the house Wednesday evening. She says the truck was involved in a hit-and-run crash earlier in the day.
Harden says someone drove the truck up the hill and abandoned it. The vehicle then rolled down the other side, hitting the home.
Police say the driver wasn’t the owner of the truck. They didn’t report the damages to the house or whether anyone was home at the time.
