FIRST ON WITN: Two Trapped After Vehicle Strikes Home

A man and a woman were trapped in their pickup truck for about a half hour this morning after their vehicle rolled over and crashed into a home.

The Highway Patrol says the crash happened on Waters Road, outside of Jacksonville. Waters Road is off of Old 30 Road, in the Piney Green community.

The truck struck the house, breaking out several windows of the home. Fortunately, no one was inside the house at the time.

The vehicle's roof was slammed against the home and rescue crews had to cut the windshield out, then pulled the two people from the wrecked vehicle.

The driver, Jared Jenkins of Jacksonville, along with passenger Heather Bragg, are both at Onslow Memorial Hospital.

Troopers are not yet sure what distracted the driver and say that charges are pending.
