JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after crashing his pickup into a Juneau home.

Officers pulled Craig Stephen Temanson, 63, from the vehicle that was partially lodged in the home Saturday morning. The Juneau man was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Police say Temanson was the only occupant in the vehicle when he veered off the road and drove over a ditch, two driveways and a flower bed before slamming into the residence.

Homeowner Scott Philip and his son were the only two people in the residence at the time of the crash. Neither was injured.

Philip told the Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/28Ifu5A ) that it sounded like a bomb went off when the truck slammed into his bedroom.



The crash caused an estimated $80,000 in damage to the home, which was raised 18 inches off its foundation as a result of the truck’s impact.

Police do not suspect alcohol to be a factor in the case and have requested an autopsy.
